A woman in Kodiak allegedly stabbed her husband with a kitchen knife after she found nude pictures of another woman on his phone.

Ariana Miller, 29, faces one count of first-degree assault (a class A felony) and one count of third-degree assault (a class C felony). The class A felony is punishable by a maximum sentence of up to 20 years in prison, and the class C felony is punishable by up to five years in prison.

According to court records, the husband told Alaska State Troopers that the couple had been having marital problems and Miller believed he was having an affair.

Miller told Alaska State Troopers she suspected for some time that her husband had been committing adultery. On March 25, her husband went to work and left his cellphone behind. Miller said she found nude pictures of another woman on his phone, the report reads.

She called her husband at his job and told him what she found, and he returned home that afternoon to discuss the situation.

Miller told Troopers she accused him of committing adultery and tried to leave the home. She said her husband grabbed her to stop her from leaving.

At that point, she allegedly grabbed a six-inch serrated kitchen knife from the counter and stabbed him in the stomach, the report reads.

The man was taken to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries.

Miller was held in handcuffs and taken to the Coast Guard Investigative Service office where Troopers later arrested her.

Alaska State Troopers, Coast Guard Military Police and the U.S. Coast Guard Investigative Service responded to the incident since it took place at a home located on U.S. Coast Guard Base Kodiak.

Miller was being held on a $30,000 bond.
