Man ham­mers wife

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

A 60-year-old man was ar­rested in Almàssera (Castel­lón) on Mon­day for at­tempted mur­der. The vic­tim man­aged to make her way to a health cen­tre, who called the po­lice. When con­fronted by of­fi­cers the ag­gres­sor calmly stated that he had beaten her with a ham­mer be­cause he ‘was de­pressed’. He is cur­rently in prison, while psy­chi­a­trists are at­tempt­ing to dis­cover whether he was aware of what he was do­ing when com­mit­ting the crime or not. For­tu­nately, the 58-year-old vic­tim sur­vived and is re­cov­er­ing from her in­juries.
