Talk about Denial....
Noel Hanson loves his wife.
Even though she tried to kill him this week.
The Blaine man, whose wife of more than 20 years, Sandra Rod Hanson, 55, appeared Friday morning in Anoka County District Court on attempted murder charges, said he's worried about her.
"She needs counseling," Noel Hanson, 56, told the Pioneer Press, "because she tried to kill me. I don't hate her for that. Irregardless of what happened, I'm alive. She's alive. There's gotta be some way we can go forward."
On Tuesday morning, facing eviction from their mobile home and mounting debt stemming from her husband's medical needs, Sandra Hanson turned on the gas stove, but not the burner, in an attempt to kill her husband and herself, Anoka County prosecutors allege.
My favorite line from the article was the following:
"There's a disconnect, because she obviously tried to murder me," he recalled. "But then she started asking me about food and what I had to eat. She was worried about me. It seemed unreal."
Call me crazy, but I wouldn't be letting this woman cook for me anytime soon if I were this guy.
