A 50-year-old Kingman man said he hopes to reunite with his wife after serving a 2½-year prison sentence for stabbing and beating her.

"I am so sorry that things happened this way," Barry Lavell Emerich said during his sentencing hearing before Judge Derek Carlisle Tuesday. "Everything will work out once we put this behind us."

The victim did not attend the hearing. Authorities said the 66-year-old woman was found bloody and running down Hearne Avenue on Aug. 29 asking for help. She told Mohave County Sheriff's deputies that her husband attacked her for no reason and that she grabbed a knife to try and defend herself before escaping out a backdoor.

Emerich's attorney, Tammy Dusharm, disputed the deputies' version of events but did not specify which part. The Sheriff's Office report said Emerich attacked his wife with seemingly no provocation.

"(It was) a surprise and vicious attack with his fists to the side and back of her head in which the victim suffered 25 blows causing multiple lacerations and bleeding," the report stated.

The report also indicated possible methamphetamine use on Emerich's part.

Emerich pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated assault per domestic violence. Carlisle sentenced him to the maximum 2½ years possible under terms of a plea agreement with the state.

@ Oh Really
Blame the Prosecutor's office, not the Judge. Read the last line of the story.

2.5 years for attempted murder? The injustice here is that the judge handed down that kind of sentence, that's what is criminal.

And lets all pray the victim in this case isn't going back.
