MONROE, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a man who kept police at bay for several hours following a domestic violence incident at his home is now facing attempted murder charges.

Middlesex County prosecutors say 47-year-old Robert Witkowski also faces numerous other counts stemming from Friday morning’s standoff in Monroe. The charges were made public Monday.

Authorities say Witkowski barricaded himself inside the home for more than three hours.

Once officers got inside the residence, they found a woman suffering from a head injury. She was taken to a hospital, but further details on her condition have not been disclosed.

Bail was set at $350,000 for Witkowski. It wasn’t known Monday if he’s retained an attorney.

Besides the murder count, he faces charges of aggravated assault, criminal mischief, hindering and a weapons offense.
