Sept. 19 – Chelmsford Patch has obtained additional information on the charges of alleged attempted murder by Edward Jones, 38 of 150 Hunt Rd.
According to documents obtained from Lowell District Court, the incident began when his wife arrived home, telling him he needed to leave. Jones told his wife he did not want to leave, but his wife persisted.
At this point according to the reports, Jones allegedly grabbed his wife’s neck and began to repeatedly throw her head against the ground, choking her in the process.
He then allegedly released his wife and went to grab a knife and punch a hole into a nearby wall.
His wife attempted to open a window, fearing that he would use the knife on her, but the records indicate that he began to cut him wrists with the knife at this point, saying that he no longer wanted to live.
From there, he left the scene. He would return to the house, at which point police had arrived.
According to police reports, Jones allegedly had blood on his hands and clothes, as well as what appeared to be glassy eyes and the smell of alcohol on his breath.
Jones was arraigned at Lowell District Court on Sept. 28 and is scheduled for a probable cause hearing on Nov. 9.
