Premise: If someone told the women featured on ``Wives With Knives'' to cut the men out of their lives, the women took the advice literally. The series recounts real stories of women who stabbed their significant others, some of them fatally. The motivations for committing the crimes varied -- many of the attackers reached their breaking points after years of sexual, emotional and physical abuse, while jealousy and greed were primary factors for others. The series' host is criminologist, behavioral analyst and attorney Dr. Casey Jordan, who talks with the femme fatales on the series to add depth to the stories.
After surviving a difficult childhood, Laura Lewis becomes involved with a cheater who beats her and fights back with a knife.
