Woman in wheelchair hospitalized, husband charged
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Huntington police say a woman who uses a wheelchair has been hospitalized with fractured ribs and her husband is facing felony charges.
Police filed a criminal complaint in Cabell County Magistrate Court charging 50-year-old Kerry Scott Maynard of Huntington with abuse or neglect of an incapacitated adult.
The complaint says the couple's two sons returned home earlier this month to find their mother, who also had a black eye and arm bruises. The woman has difficulty speaking due to a stroke and seizures. When asked who was responsible, she pointed to a room where her husband was.
Media outlets report the woman was taken to a hospital.
Maynard was arrested Wednesday and is being held at the Western Regional Jail. Jail records didn't indicate whether he has an attorney.
