Mountain Home, AR (The Weekly Vice) - Jason Marshall, a 29-year-old Mountain Home man is facing multiple charges after he allegedly attacked his wife with an axe, after abusing her and their son in a fit of rage.
According to Baxter County deputies, Marshall attacked his wife on Monday with his fists, causing injuries to her back, head, arms, and pelvic area.
When her 9-year-old son tried to intervene, Marshall picked him up and slammed his head against the wall.
Investigators say Marshall’s wife, son, and 16-year-old daughter managed to get away from the deranged man. As they were driving away, Marshall reportedly picked up an axe and swung it at his wife, barely missing her. He hit the vehicle instead.
An ambulance was called to the scene and transported 41-year-old Elizabeth Ann Marshall, and her 9-year-old son to the Baxter Region Medical Center, where they were treated and released.
When deputies tried to arrest Marshall, he allegedly resisted arrest, forcing deputies to subdue him with a Taser.
Marshall was taken to the Baxter County Detention Center where deputies say he continued to be combative and caused damage to the booking area. He was placed in a holding cell in restraints.
Marshall was charged with domestic battery, aggravated assault and resisting arrest. He was ordered held in lieu of $250,000 bond.
Incidentally Marshall was on parole at the time of the attack because of another conviction. Investigators say that he spent time in the Arkansas Department of Corrections for attacking the same woman with a knife.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
This is one angry, ugly man! His wife should have gotten away from him the first time when he attacked her with a knife! He was in prison, that made it easy. Oh, well, love is blind, I guess.
Hopefully this time she will be a bit wiser, for her son’s sake!
