North Carolina Man Calls 911 After Taking Cough Medicine And Waking Up to Find His Wife Stabbed

A man woke up from what he thought was a nightmare to find he had actually stabbed his wife in his sleep. He can be heard on the 911 call saying "I think I killed me (wife) .." The 911 operator tries to get more information from the caller, "What - what do you mean by that? What happened?" "I had a dream and then I turned on the lights and she’s dead on the floor,” the man says. “Um, I have blood all over me and there’s a bloody knife on the bed and I think I did it."

Phelps, who is only 27, can be heard in the phone call saying he took cough medicine before he went to bed. "I took more medicine than I should have,” “I took Coricidin … because I know it can make you feel good. So a lot of times I can’t sleep at night, so I took some… . She’s not moving. Oh my God," Phelps said beginning to panic in the call.
