The Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office issued the following press release Monday:

Yesterday afternoon at approx. 5:00 PM, deputies responded to 4 Furman St., Enoree, SC, 29336 in reference to a domestic violence with weapons call.

At first, the male caller to 911 stated his wife was assaulting him with a baseball bat; then the male changed his story and told the dispatcher he had taken the bat away from his wife and killed her with it.

Upon deputies’ arrival, they detained the male caller and requested EMS for the female victim. Deputies also located a male witness upstairs at the residence who heard but didn’t observe the altercation between the couple.

EMS transported the victim to the hospital where she remains in critical condition. The male was transported the office, where an interview of him was attempted, but he requested an attorney.

The male was then transported to the detention facility, and an investigator discussed the case with a judge, who approved a warrant for Attempted Murder.
