The Calcasieu Sheriff's Office says a Lake Charles man is charged with attempted second degree murder after attacking his wife with needle nose pliers.
On June 25, CPSO responded to a call at a local hospital in reference to a woman who had arrived with chest pains. When deputies arrived they were notified by hospital staff that the victim had several puncture wounds to her head and face area.
According to investigators, 61-year-old, Oliver Daniel confronted his wife about arriving home late from church. They say, Oliver then armed himself with the pliers and attacked the victim, striking her three times on the left side of her head.
The victim told detectives she was able to run out the front door of the residence to find a neighbor and call an ambulance.
Oliver was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center.
Judge Ronald Ware set his bond at $60,000.
The victim sustained moderate injuries from the attack. She was treated and released from the hospital.
