Woman Stabbed 10 Times Sues After Online Date Leads to Murder Attempt

Las Vegas resident Mary Kay Beckman says she ended an 8-day relationship in 2010 with Wade Mitchell Ridley. Months later, she claims he returned and tried to end her life, stabbing her 10 times. Now, Beckman is suing the online dating site, where she "met" Ridley, for $10 million. But, is the site really to blame?

Neil Cavuto delved further into the claim on today's Your World, with attorney Remi Spencer saying that she believes Beckman's claim against the site is legitimate. "What she really wants is for to do a better job of screening their subscribers and notifying their customers that this is possible," she said. Spencer added that the horrifying event is not just possible, but realistic.

Others, however, say preventing such attacks all comes down to common sense.
