A DuPage County judge set bail at $2 million Monday for a Westmont woman who is accused of stabbing her husband to death.

Lisa Davis, 42, appeared in court via video. She is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her husband David Davis, 49.

Westmont police say they responded to a call to Davis’ home Friday night and found her husband, David, with a stab wound.

Prosecutors say Davis called 911 to report that her husband had been stabbed. “When the operator asked her who stabbed her husband, the defendant said ‘I did,'” Assistant State’s Attorney Amanda Meindl told the judge.

Davis’ died a few hours later and she was arrested at the home.

Investigators say the couple was in an argument when she stabbed her husband with a kitchen knife.
