    “… wife was watching television .. She thought that it is her husband Jacob but she found the burglar who attacked her instantly … she killed the burglar immediately with the knife.”

    ……

    So, we have: someone ‘attacks instantly‘ and the attacked person  defends  with a knife. That’s possible only if the victim (of the attack) had the knife in her possession when she was attacked.  And she was “watching television” and opened the door “thinking that it was her husband”! How many people watches TV with knife in hand? And How many of them would open the door for her husband, with knife still in hand? If she had opened the door with knife in hand thinking that the person who arrived was her husband, it implies that she had planned to kill her husband on arrival.
