A jealous wife has been arrested in Mexico after she reportedly stabbed her husband in a blind rage when she found old photos on his cell phone of him having sex with ‘another’ woman – failing to realize the images were actually of her.

The woman, identified by police only as ‘Leonora R’, was arrested last week after law enforcement were summoned to a home in the municipality of Cajeme, Sonora, to reports of a domestic dispute.

When officers arrived they found that Leonora’s husband, identified as ‘Juan N’, had been stabbed multiple times on his legs and arms.

The violent attack was reportedly sparked after Leonora found explicit photos on Juan’s cell phone, showing him having sex with whom she believed to be another woman.

Without giving him time to explain himself, Leonora allegedly began stabbing Juan over and over again, while hurling insults at him.

Police said Juan was eventually able to wrestle the knife out of his incensed wife’s hands, and asked her what photos she was talking about.

He then explained to her that the photos were actually of him and Leonora taken years earlier when they were just dating.  

Leonora reportedly didn’t immediately recognize herself because the woman in the images was younger, thinner and wearing make-up, according to Dossier Politico.

Juan told police he then explained to his wife that he had recently found the images in an old email and saved them to his phone.

She soon realized she was the woman depicted, reports say.

Leonora was immediately taken into custody and remains behind bars pending charges, local media say.

The case has reportedly been referred to the Public Ministry of the State Attorney General’s Office.

The extent of Juan’s injuries have not yet been disclosed by officials.

However the man was taken to hospital to be treated for multiple stab wounds but is expected to recover.

Police were reportedly notified to the scene after neighbors heard screaming and shouting inside the couple’s home.
