Husband charged with stabbing wife seven times
July 18, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Tony Lee

The 84-year-old Pacifica man accused of stabbing his wife seven times Sunday told a family friend calling ahead of prearranged dinner plans not to bother coming over because he’d already killed her, according to prosecutors.

Tony Gocksue Lee stabbed his wife of 54 years three times in the neck, twice in the abdomen, once in the right thigh and once in the left hand, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

When the friend phoned, Lee reportedly said, “Don’t bother bringing over dinner. I’ve already killed her,” Wagstaffe said.

The friend called police who found the injured 72-year-old woman inside the couple’s home in the 400 block of Griffin Avenue around 5 p.m. July 13. He was arrested and she taken to a hospital where she remains in critical condition.

The District Attorney’s Office on Wednesday filed three counts of attempted murder, domestic violence and assault with a deadly weapon against Lee. Although due in court that afternoon, the jail did not medically clear him to attend. On Thursday, Lee was again not cleared to attend his arraignment and the matter was postponed until Friday afternoon.

Lee has no criminal history in San Mateo County and Wagstaffe said he is unaware of any previous violence in the couple’s relationship.

Lee remains in custody without bail.
