UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) - A Prince George’s County judge has ordered that a D.C. police officer charged with trying to kill his wife be confined to his parents’ home with electronic monitoring.

Prosecutors requested Thursday that Samson Lawrence III be held or monitored electronically until trial because his wife fears for herself and her children. His attorney argued Lawrence hadn’t violated his bond terms and it would be unnecessary.

Lawrence had been out on a $200,000 bond after he was charged with attempted murder, assault and possessing a dangerous weapon with intent to injure.

Prosecutors say Lawrence beat his wife, who has a brain tumor, in the head in an effort to kill her at their Accokeek home. They say Lawrence also threatened her with knives and tried to keep her from calling 911.
