A Titusville area man is hospitalized at UPMC Hamot after police say he was attacked by his wife.  54-year-old Allen Nichols was airlifted to the hospital after police say 53-year-old Sally Nichols hit him over the head with a shovel and stabbed him several times in the back with a knife. The incident occurred around 6:15 last evening at the couple’s home on Route 27 in Oil Creek Township.

Mrs. Nichols was arraigned before District Magistrate Andrew Fish and remanded to the Venango County Jail in lieu of half a million dollars bail.   A nursing supervisor this morning said Mr. Nichols is in fair condition.
