Deltaville man charged with stabbing wife
A Deltaville man is in jail, being held without bond and charged with attempted second-degree murder of his wife, reported Major M.E. Sampson of the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office this week.
Major Sampson said that in the early morning hours of Saturday, April 11, the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call in reference to a female showing up at a neighbor’s house soaked in blood and claiming that her husband tried to kill her. Deputies responded to the 800 block of Timberneck Road in Deltaville and found the victim, Patricia Figueroa, 55, of Deltaville, with multiple stab wounds and lacerations. Mrs. Figueroa was transported to Bons Secours Rappahannock General Hospital in Kilmarnock and later flown to MCV Hospital in Richmond for further treatment.
When deputies entered the residence with medical personnel they discovered Benjamin Figueroa, 67, of Deltaville, on the floor of the bedroom. First-responders initially thought Mr. Figueroa had a laceration to his neck but it was later determined that Mr. Figueroa’s wounds were all superficial. Mr. Figueroa was transported to Riverside Walter Reed Hospital in Gloucester where he was treated and released.
