Katie hill was arrested on March 23rd by police officers who responded to a domestic violence call. Now, almost three weeks later, she has been faced with charges of attempted criminal homicide and is being held in jail instead of a $150,000 bail amount.
According to reports in The Tennessean, on March 23rd, Hill was charged with domestic assault and interference of an emergency call after she was arrested for physically attacking her husband and attempting to pry the phone away as he dialled 911 for help.
In her latest fit of rage, the 50-year old woman really took it to the next level by stabbing her husband. Alvin Douglas was stabbed once in the left arm and once in the left collarbone. According to the arresting officers, she was covered in blood and uninjured when they arrived on scene. Douglas had said that he was seated in a recliner when his wife came up on him from around a corner and proceeded to violently start stabbing him.
The incident report states that Hill had said that she was not able to comprehend why the police had concluded that she stabbed Douglas as he was the one holding the knife.
West Virginia Supreme Court Judges reverse Circuit Court’s ruling with regards to spousal support
Carol Elaine Warren and Todd E. Garland were married on Valentine’s Day of 1984. They separated after 28 years on February 17th, 2012. Post-divorce, Warren’s mental health began to decline as a result of depression due to her failed marriage. Being unable to continue working, she intentionally chose to collect premature social security benefits at the age of 62.
Garland’s divorce attorney had filed an application for divorce with a Webster Family Court on June 21st, 2012. During their divorce proceedings in a Webster Family Court, it was ruled that Garland would have to pay Warren a monthly spousal support of $350 for three years after which he would have to make monthly payments of $650 as spousal support until he reached the age of 67.
According to the acute information put out by the The West Virginia Record, Garland and Warren and their respective divorce attorneys agreed on all other matters apart from the spousal support ruling. Garland felt that Warren should return to work since she had retired early and that he should not have to pay so much spousal support. To counter this, in the final hearing Warren called upon her psychologist, Dr. Lisa Ryan, and her former employer, Janet Keating.
Ex-wife is depressed, does not have to work
Ryan testified that Warren was diagnosed with chronic depression and Keating testified saying that she would not be willing to reemploy Warren due to her mental condition and also due to the face the she had already hired another employee to replace Warren. These testimonials effectively voided Garland’s argument that she had to return to work and the Webster Family Court stood by their initial ruling.
Husband appeals Webster Family Courts ruling on spousal support
Not content with this verdict, Garland filed an appeal with a Circuit Court and was able to overturn a part of the decision of the Webster family court. The Circuit Court ordered that there should not be any increase in spousal support and the amount should remain at $350 per month even after three years.
However, Warren had the last laugh when she appealed the Circuit Court’s decision in the West Virginia Supreme Court. The Supreme Court agreed with Warren’s argument that the Circuit Court’s ruling should be over thrown and the initial ruling of the family court should be reinstated. Their decision was based on the fact that after three years Garland would not be obligated to pay attorney fees or his marital credit card dues and so he can afford to pay a higher amount in terms of spousal support.
Warren will never have the last laugh considering she is so depressed she cannot function.
