21-Year-Old Woman Says She Was Having A ‘Dream’ When She Stabbed Her Former Boyfriend 19 Times

Winnebago County Sheriff's Office

A woman from Wisconsin, Morgan Lund, who reports note has a history of abuse claims she was dreaming the moment she stabbed her former boyfriend 19 times, court documents say, according to the New York Post. The 21-year-old mother pleaded not guilty to the Feb. 18 stabbing for reason of mental disease. 

Officials got to Lund’s home not too long before 8 a.m. and discovered her weeping as she was drenched in blood and applying pressure to her former boyfriend’s wound, says a criminal complaint that was filed against her. She informed officials that she

“thought she saw something”

when she stabbed her ex. She went on to say that she was concerned that there was

“something wrong with my head.”

The former couple has a child together and recently called it quits. Lund said she woke up that morning of the attack close to 6:30 a.m and took their child to the living room, where her former boyfriend was asleep on the couch. Reports say the mother took her child to the living room so the baby could play in the playpen and she could go back to sleep. 

Court documents say,

“She had a muddled memory of something that might have been a dream, or her imagination, but she thought the [victim] was yelling at their daughter.” 

The woman informed officials that she witnessed a gloaming, non-human


and then began attacking her child’s father with a scissor. Reports added that Lund had been hallucinating for six months at that point. This caused her to grab a scissor and stab her ex because she thought he was the dark figure. Her ex informed cops that he was able to get a hold of her. The woman went on to say,

“that she did not know what was happening, she had a dream.”

The former boyfriend asked if Lund can grab him a towel, which she then

“said something about, ‘I don’t want to lose custody.’”

Luckily, the unidentified man survived. He later said that Lund has been abusive in the past. 

She is being held on a $250,000 bond and charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide.
