NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
A husband is in custody after his wife and her sister-in-law were stabbed early Tuesday morning.
Donnell Anthony Simpson, 40, faces two counts of attempted murder in the stabbings.
An officer was on his way home from work when he spotted Simpson walking on Owendale Drive at Hamilton Church Road just after 7 a.m.
Upon seeing the police car, Simpson ran into the woods. The officer turned around and stopped, prompting Simpson to come out of the Woods and surrender.
In the first case from 12:30 a.m., Simpson's brother and sister-in-law, Ronald and Lena Simpson, were asleep inside their Melvin Jones Drive home when Donnell Simpson appeared in their bedroom.
Lena Simpson, 37, said her husband attacked her with a knife and stabbed her in the right chest.
"By that time, my wife jumped up, hollering, 'I'm stabbed!' I thought he was hitting her, but he had a knife still in," said the man's brother, Ronald Simpson.
Ronald Simpson grabbed his brother in a bear hug and wrestled him away. During the ensuing struggle, Donnell Simpson ran away.
Ronald Simpson then drove his wife, with the knife still in her right chest, to Southern Hills Medical Center. She was subsequently transferred to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
In the second case from 12:50 a.m., Donnell Simpson came to his wife's Forest Breeze Drive home despite an order of protection. A man was actually present changing the locks on the residence when Donnell Simpson arrived.
Witnesses reported that Donnell Simpson punched Marqueta Simpson, 31, in the face at least twice before retrieving a box cutter from his pocket. He stabbed her several times and even dragged her toward the front door as Marqueta Simpson's mother, who was also present, telephoned police.
Donnell Simpson then ran from the home to his car. He apparently could not find the keys and fled the property on foot. Officers searched for Donnell Simpson through the night until he was arrested at 7 a.m.
Officers previously arrested Donnell Simpson on Monday at 4:45 p.m. on charges of aggravated assault and violating an order of protection obtained by his wife on Sunday.
Marqueta Simpson reported that he threw a brick at her while she was in her vehicle. The brick broke a window and landed in the back floorboard. He was taken into custody after returning to the Forest Breeze Drive residence.
"He just exploded and let it all out," Ronald Simpson said.
Simpson's bail on those charges was set at $5,000. He bonded out of jail Monday at 9:16 p.m.
Marqueta Simpson is in stable condition at Vanderbilt Medical Center. Lena Simpson has been released from the hospital.
In addition to the attempted murder charges, Donnell Simpson is also being charged with violating the conditions of his bond and again violating the order of protection.
His bond Tuesday was set at $2.05 million.
"I don't have a brother any more as far as I'm concerned. I got an older brother but he violated that. He could've killed my wife. My children wouldn't not had a mother," Ronald Simpson said.
