Man stands trial in Ohio stabbing death of wife

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A trial has opened in northeast Ohio in the case of a man accused of killing his wife by stabbing her more than 100 times with kitchen knives in front of their two elementary school-aged children last year.

Fifty-one-year-old Glenn Wong tried to plead not guilty by reason of insanity in the February 2013 slaying of his 46-year-old wife Tami, but that effort was rejected by the judge.

The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/1hqGGkY ) reports that a prosecutor, in opening statements Tuesday, told jurors that Tami Wong suffered 103 stab wounds with serrated knives at their home in Twinsburg.

Prosecutors suggested Glenn Wong suspected his wife was having an affair.

A defense attorney said Wong won't contest most facts but prosecutors must prove every element of the charge.
