Ayala was then accused of chasing Torres outside with a pair of metal fingernail clippers with a file.

Court documents said that Ayala told cops she only wanted to scare her husband – and did not mean to hurt him, WJAC reported.
During a January court hearing, attorney Eugene P Tinari said: “Who stabs someone in the calf if you want to kill them? Nobody,” the Daily Mail reported.
In a 911 call, Ayala said “He stopped breathing, he’s bleeding” and told the dispatcher “I don’t know what’s going on!” according to WJAC.
Torres suffered a wound to his his left calf, hands, shoulder, groin area, and foot, NJ.com reported.

Although cops arrived to find Ayala giving Torres chest compressions and he was rushed to the hospital, he later died.
The mom told cops she was responsible for the assault around the time of the incident, NJ.com reported.
