He told investigators that when he went to bed that evening he heard a “crunchy” noise that sounded and felt like plastic underneath the sheets. When he asked Renee what it was, she told him that she had put down extra blankets for comfort.

Police later discovered a layer of black plastic underneath the sheets and found a number of large aluminum roasting pans, numerous towels and a number of bottles of bleach — all items that Brett said were unusual to have in the house.  

*****************************************

There are times when you just have to resign yourself to the fact that your wife is planning to cut your head off with a power saw.

At least this crazy *itch is in jail where she can’t hurt the children. They have got to be scarred by having an insane mother, but hopefully, they can be helped.

I hate to say this, but I’m afraid this marriage might not work out. Things seem a bit tense in that household. Perhaps with counseling, he could learn to stop being annoying to her and learn to speak in a supportive way to her. Because it’s always the guy’s fault, you know. < /s>

Loved her foresight with the plastic sheeting and roasting pans, BTW. Always think ahead! You don’t want to mess up a perfectly good mattress when you butcher your spouse with a tiger saw. But in general, I would advise an 18-inch wood-metal wrecking blade for a job like this. You can get them in a three-pack at Home Depot for about $20. Worth the investment when you have a big job to do.

his wife was holding the saw, but, luckily for him, it was a reciprocating saw with a small blade. He then said he pushed her away and got out of bed, but she swung a hatchet at him and struck him in shoulder and then swung a mallet at him, hitting him in back of head. ... He married a well-armed (three armed) woman.

She was certainly dangerous,it’s a good thing she didn’t know much about power tools. An electric chainsaw would have done the job for her.

Agreed, although they'll always be the winners in any one-upmanship conversation about whose upbringing was more destructive to their lives.  It's pretty hard to beat: "Your dad was an abusive  drunk? Yeah, well my mom tried to cut off my dad's head with a power saw." 

That pretty much stops the conversation right there.

I the good old days I remember
with a knife she would try to dismember
just your most valued part, your member.

But today it’s Ryobi, Makita, Black and Decker
and the target more valuable than your pecker

Lock up the tool shed each night before bed
and sleep with one eye open, and you might keep your head.

I have a large number of aluminum roasting pans in the house, in the garage, and on the porch; they’ll get used to hold pots of seedling next spring.

The ‘several bottle of bleach’, along with the bottles of “pool (muriatic) acid” and “sewer (sulfuric) acid”, all have other uses.

Ditto for the cans of Red Devil lye, toluene, acetone, denatured alcohol, and bottles of grossly outdated wine.

Sheesh; everything is “suspicious” these days.

bone blades? I’m not sure...

Essentially. They're used in the cordless models for field quartering elk, etc.

Rocky Top Ripper Reciprocating Saw Blades Converts standard reciprocating saw into meat saw

Three-blade set .063"-thick steel Turn any reciprocating saw into a venison-processor's best friend. This three-pack includes 12", 9" and 6" blades. The 12" blade is ideal for elk, moose, bison and other big jobs. The all-around 9" blade is great for deer, hogs and antelope. Take the 6" blade into the field to clear shooting lanes and limbs from around the stand. All have a reverse-tooth design that displaces bone and meat away from the saw for nearly effortless cutting. They're made of .063"-thick steel, making them the strongest replacement blades on the market. Fit all popular brands of reciprocating saws.

Cabela's. Other places have same or similar.

Well, Jael the wife of Heber drove a tent spike through Sisera’s head while he was asleep.

See Judges 4.

Bet Heber slept poorly after that.

UPDATE:

Everett woman convicted in saw attack on husband

(edit)

A Washington state woman accused of trying to decapitate her sleeping husband with an electric saw was convicted Thursday of attempted murder.

Jurors needed only about three hours to reach a verdict in the trial of Renee Bishop-McKean of Everett. They also convicted the 44-year-old woman of first-degree assault for hitting the man in the head with a hatchet and mallet.

 

(edit)

The woman, who did not testify, shook her head in disagreement when the verdicts were announced.

Bishop-McKean faces at least 15 years in prison at sentencing set for Oct. 4.

What was she going to do with the head? What’s the going price among the headhunters?

 

Another recent amateur butcher mailed body parts to various recipients around Canada.  This was possibly done without a profit motive, as a quick search of eBay does not reveal a thriving market for decapitated human heads. 

It could be, however, that this woman had insider information on an emerging market and was a-head of the curve.

UPDATE:

 

Everett woman gets 18 years in electric saw attack

 

(edit)

 

Superior Court Judge Eric Lucas supported the prosecution's sentencing recommendation for 44-year-old Renee Bishop-McKean. She was convicted last month of attempted first-degree murder.

The judge said Thursday it was clear to him that the woman made an attempt on her husband's life. The Daily Herald reports that Lucas also said he was convinced Bishop-McKean suffered from either a "mental disturbance" or "some kind of brain injury."
