Any family dispute that ends in tragedy is terrible for those involved and close to the family but when kids are present, it's even worse.

What appeared to be a normal home in a typical West Michigan neighborhood turned out to be anything but that Monday evening just before 7 pm.

A husband and wife got into an argument that turned violent and resulted in the husband stabbing his wife to death.

What is even more horrifying is that their three children, two aged 10 and one 7-year-old, were in the home at the time of the incident. It is unclear at this time what the children saw or did not see but obviously, they knew it was bad because two of them fled the home to notify a neighbor to contact the police.

My heart just breaks with the trauma these children are experiencing now and for many years to come.

According to WOOD-TV 32-year-old Quinn Arielle Hallacy is the woman that was stabbed by her husband. Fortunately, none of the three children were physically hurt although one of the 10-year-olds was taken by the father when he fled the scene and was later captured.

Unfortunately, the three children will not grow up seeing their mother smile in person any longer.

The husband, Matthew Hallacy, is being held in the Ottawa County Jail and a judge has denied him bond. He has also been ordered to have zero contact with the three children.
