A successful psychologist specializing in couples therapy faces felony assault and weapons-possession charges for slashing her husband with two kitchen knives on September 29th. Joyce Poster-Lederman, who practices on the Upper West Side and Riverdale, allegedly cut husband Selwyn Lederman, also a psychologist, during a domestic dispute in their West 84th Street apartment. Police sources say the marriage therapist got pissed during the argument and came at Lederman with a knife in each hand.

In the NY Post's words, Poster-Lederman, 64, "apparently forgot her anger-management techniques and bellowed a primal scream of 'Get out! Get out!'" Lederman, 79, sustained cuts on his left and right knees, right ankle and left thumb. He had no comment for a reporter outside their apartment yesterday, but Poster-Lederman's lawyer described the incident as "a little bit of a misunderstanding. They don't want an order of protection. There might have been some verbal dispute." And some slice and dice. But at least there wasn't a pot of boiling water on the stove.
