RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - A 46-year-old Fremont County man has been accused of trying to kill his wife with a hatchet.

Terry L. Schmuck, of Kinnear, is charged with attempted first-degree murder.

The Riverton Ranger reports (http://bit.ly/1Ih3uGE) that Schmuck appeared Monday in Circuit Court where his bail was set at $500,000 cash. He remained in custody.

According to police reports, the incident occurred last Thursday in Kinnear. Schmuck took his wife to a medical facility, and she was later airlifted to the Wyoming Medical Center for an open skull fracture. She was expected to make a full recovery.

Police say two children, ages 12 and 13, who were at the residence when the incident occurred were unharmed.

An affidavit says Cindy Schmuck had an active protection order against Terry Schmuck at the time.
