Alabama man accused of cutting wife’s throat with circular saw
An east Alabama man is behind bars after authorities say he attacked his wife at their Wedowee home and used a circular saw to cut her neck and throat.
Kyle Young Waters, 35, is charged with attempted murder and domestic violence.
Court records made public this week chronicle the attack that happened on Feb. 3 in Randolph County.
Charging documents state that the couple on that night went out to dinner together.
Afterward, they went to a storage building behind their home where they had consensual sex on a mattress in a loft in the outbuilding, according to the documents.
While the victim was looking over the loft at the ground below, investigators stated, Waters pushed his wife out of the loft. She fell eight feet and landed on the cement floor.
Waters then jumped on his wife, according to authorities.
He allegedly banged her head repeatedly into the cement floor and then started stabbing her with shards of broken glass, records state. The victim tried to fight back and was able to get the glass shards from him.
That, police say, is when Waters grabbed a Ryobi circular saw, placed the blade on her neck and cut her throat. “There was an excessive amount of blood at the scene and on the saw,’’ according to the criminal complaint.
Investigators recovered the glass shards, which also were covered in blood. Waters, police said, had numerous injuries to his hands when he was taken into custody.
Randolph County sheriff’s investigators on Tuesday said the victim was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries. She underwent surgery and is expected to survive.
Waters is being held in the Randolph County Jail with cash bonds totaling $110,000.
