61-year-old Robert David Masker was arrested overnight for attempted murder and malicious wounding.
Last night, the Marmet Police Department responded to a call of a possible suicide attempt. According to the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office, Masker called a family member and seemed suicidal. He later came out of his room, surrendering to Marmet Police officers.
To their appearance, he had minor cuts on his neck from the possible suicide attempt. His wife was later discovered in that same residence bleeding from cuts on her neck as well. She told police her husband did that to her.
She was then taken to an area hospital in serious condition. An investigation is ongoing and the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office is assisting the Marmet Police Department.
