A Coulee City man apparently took his own life Tuesday after allegedly assaulting his wife, Grant County authorities reported late Tuesday.
Around 2 p.m., emergency responders were called to a Coulee City business for a woman who was injured, according to a press release. That woman alleges she was assaulted by her husband at their home, 35374 Pinto Ridge Road Northeast, just outside of the city limits of Coulee City.
She escaped the home and drove to the nearby business to seek help. The woman was taken by ambulance to a local hospital and is being treated for her injuries. Her identity will not be released while the investigation is underway.
Grant County Sheriff Deputies found a dead man in his 50s, who apparently hanged himself outside the home. That man is believed to be the husband of the assault victim. His name will be released once the county coroner has confirmed his identity and next of kin have been notified.
