ESSEX, Md. (AP) — Baltimore County Police say an Essex man has been charged with attacking his 72-year-old wife with a hammer.
Officers were called to a home on Carvel Grove Road for a report of an assault on Sunday and found the woman with a head wound. She was taken to an area hospital for treatment, but police say her current condition is unknown.

Yi is charged with attempted first-degree murder and assault and is being held without bail.
