WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– There’s new details about just what went down Wednesday night in the domestic dispute that involved a firefighter and her husband in West Hartford.
“Shocking, I’m surprised, it’s really too bad,” said a woman.
A firefighter, dedicated to helping others is arrested on domestic abuse charges. Marsha McCurdy and Vincent Adell were married two weeks ago but Wednesday police say the couple got into an all out fight that sent them to the hospital with cuts and bruises to their face.
In court documents police say when they arrived at their apartment on Kane Street in West Hartford…
“…we found the house in disarray. There was blood spattered on the living room table, on the walls, floor and in the kitchen sink. There were bloody paper towels on the counter and in the kitchen. We also found a large hole in the wall, similar to the shape of a body.”
News 8 tried to get a hold of the couple to find out what happened to the newlyweds, court papers say he moved out and she is living in their apartment.
Because we are heading into the Fourth of July Holiday, a lot of people from the town manager to the fire department couldn’t be reached for comment. There is an internal investigation and the fire department is going to wait until all of the facts come out. Meanwhile, the couple was in court on Wednesday, and they have been released on $25,000 bond.
“It appeared that in fact we had two mutual combatants who were just duking it out in a domestic violence situation then yes they both get arrested,” said Lt. Stephen Estes, West Hartford PD.
In court documents the husband and wife tell conflicting stories of how it started, but it ended in the hospital and ultimately in jail.
“Anyone who is working in the public eye should maybe think a little bit more when they act in situations like that. But I realize they are people and they go through the same type of circumstances as other folks do and things like that happen,” said a man.
