James Martin, husband of legendary female boxer Christy Martin, was finally arrested after allegedly shooting and stabbing his wife last week. Martin was apprehended near the couple’s home–which had also been robbed after the incident–and was treated for knife wounds which are believed to have been self-inflicted.
Doctors found that Martin has been stabbed and shot, although none of the injuries were considered life threatening. Deputies were called to the hospital and found Martin conscious and alert. She was able to tell them that her husband had confronted her inside their home, after she had been gone for two days, with a knife and handgun and they began to fight.
She said she was able to get out of the house after being stabbed and flag down the motorist who drove her to the hospital. Martin said she did not realize she had been shot during the altercation.
Whoa. James is 66, and apparently losing his mind, since either shooting or stabbing individually didn’t seem to be enough to do the job. Or maybe he’s just a really thorough guy. I mean, look at that dead animal on his head. That’s the mark of a man that leaves nothing to chance. A very disturbed man who doesn’t own a mirror, apparently.
