Marine accused of beating wife expected in court

JACKSONVILLE -- A Marine accused of beating his pregnant wife into a coma is set to go before a judge. Court records show 24-year-old Cpl. Jonathan Gould is scheduled to go before an Onslow County District Court judge Thursday morning. Authorities say he used a hammer to beat his wife, 26-year-old Erin Prince-Gould, then stabbed himself multiple times to fabricate a break-in at the couple's home. Investigators have said he later confessed to attacking his wife. Onslow County officials said recently that while Prince-Gould was still unresponsive, her condition had been upgraded and she was moved at New Hanover County Medical Center. A web site has been put up by Prince-Gould's friends with updates about her, and soliciting donations to help her family with expenses. (Copyright 2009 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
