Dougherty man accused of stabbing wife goes to court

February 7, 2005

Albany - The trial is underway for a Dougherty County man charged with brutally attacking his wife. Larry Giese is accused of repeatedly stabbing his wife with scissors and a box cutter.

Opening statements began Monday afternoon in the case of Larry Giese - a Marine Corps veteran. Giese is charged with three counts of aggravated assault and one count of aggravated battery and obstruction of a police officer.

Defense attorneys are expected to argue Giese was insane at the time of the attack. Superior Court Judge Stephen Goss ordered Giese undergo mental evaluations by two state psychologists. Both doctors found Giese has mental health problems, but knew right from wrong during the crime.

Giese was arrested in August for repeatedly stabbing his wife, Karel Giese, with scissors and a box cutter during a fight at the couple's east Albany home.

She suffered severe wounds, but survived.
