WHEATON, Ill. (AP) - A suburban Chicago woman accused of beating and stabbing to death her husband has told a judge she believes he's still alive.

The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reports Anka Miscevic of Lombard told DuPage County Judge Blanche Hill Fawell that not only is her husband, Zeljko, alive, but he is getting married soon. The 49-year-old Miscevic made the assertion during a hearing to determine if she is qualified for a public defender.

Fawell on Friday appointed a public defender to represent Miscevic, who asked to defend herself.

Prosecutors say Miscevic last week took a knife and a baseball bat into a bedroom and stabbed her husband once in the chest. As he removed the knife and attempted to call police, she hit him in the head with the bat.
