Linwood man facing charges after assault
A Linwood man was arrested Monday in connection with an early-morning attack on his wife, according to the Leavenworth County Sheriff's Department.
The man, William C. Cash, 32, was arrested on charges of assault and aggravated battery, unlawful restraint, making a criminal threat, auto theft and a parole violation. Cash had been on parole for less than a month, according to the sheriff's department, although a department representative did not have details on the parole.
Cash's wife was stabbed repeatedly and beaten with a baseball bat, according to Sgt. Charles Yates of the sheriff's department, who investigated the incident. The couple have been married six years, he said.
The attack occurred in a rural area near 158th Street, about two miles west of Bonner Springs, Yates said. Following the attack, Yates drove his wife to his mother's house in rural Leavenworth County, and family members took her to Providence Medical Center, where she was admitted in stable condition and released a day later.
Cash was in custody in the Leavenworth County Jail on Tuesday, pending a court appearance.
