A 73-year-old man remains hospitalized but in stable condition after allegedly being stabbed by his 70-year-old wife.

Theresa and Joseph Steudler were reportedly arguing at their home in Ridgway around 7 a.m. Monday.

The dispute turned physical when the woman pulled a knife and allegedly stabbed her husband in the upper right chest area.

Police were called by a family member who was in the home but did not actually witness the fight.

Theresa Steudler was taken into custody without incident. She was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person. She remains lodged at Elk County Prison in lieu of $50,000 bail.

Joseph Steudler was first taken to Penn Highlands Elk before eventually being flown to Altoona Hospital for his injuries. He is in stable condition.
