NC Marine corporal charged with attacking his wife

JACKSONVILLE -- Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown says a Marine corporal has been charged with attempted murder after his wife was attacked with a hammer. The sheriff's office told The Daily News of Jacksonville that 24-year-old Jonathan Matthew Gould was charged Saturday and was being held without bail. Erin Gould was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center with life-threatening head injuries. A nursing supervisor said Monday morning that the hospital has no information on a person with that name, but Erin Gould's uncle John Morelli of Ohio told the newspaper Sunday that she was stable and responding to treatment. Investigators say Jonathan Gould called police to say he had been knocked unconscious when he returned home from a late-night job and awoke to find his wife had been attacked.
