911 tapes aired in man's stabbing that officials tie to ex-wife charged in child poisoning try

Arizona authorities have released some 911 recordings where a man says he was stabbed multiple times by his ex-wife, who was later charged with killing her daughter and trying to poison her three other children.

Adam Villa called 911 as he was driving himself to a hospital. He says he was trying to pick up his kids on Christmas Day in accordance with the couple's custody agreement.

Connie Villa of Casa Grande has pleaded not guilty in the case and remains jailed without bond.

She's charged with one count of first-degree murder in the death of her 13-year-old daughter and four counts of attempted murder of her three younger children and her ex-husband.

Adam Villa survived the attack, as did his three children.
