Ex-husband questioned, released in attack

? A Rockland County man was questioned by police and released after his ex-wife was found stabbed and lying in a pool of blood Friday.

No charges have been filed against Allan Pelcak in the vicious attack of his ex-wife, Laura Matosek. Police say Matosek was found face down in the parking lot of the Sheraton Crossings Hotel in Mahwah, New Jersey after being stabbed and run over.

Matosek underwent emergency surgery while police in two states began the extensive search for her ex-husband. Pelcak was found Friday in West Haverstraw. Investigators brought him in for questioning, but released him after 12 hours.

As of Sunday, Laura Matosek was still in critical condition.
