FRUIT HEIGHTS — A Kaysville man was arrested for investigation of attempted murder Tuesday after he allegedly cut his estranged wife in the neck.
Kristopher Ertmann, 25, met with his wife at Nicholls Park in Fruit Heights to arrange some details of their divorce. During their meeting, Ertmann withdrew a sharp object and sliced his wife in the neck, inflicting a serious and dangerous wound, said Davis County Sheriff's Sgt. Susan Poulsen.
The woman was taken to a nearby hospital in serious condition but was expected to survive her injuries, Poulsen said.
Ertmann was arrested and booked into the Davis County Jail.
Poulsen encouraged the public not to hesitate to ask for police assistance when dealing with divorce or separation proceedings that have the potential of getting out of hand.
“Law enforcement is always happy to be on stand-by in case things go in a misdirection,” she said.
