Florida man charged with attempted murder after woman was rushed to hospital with hatchet protruding from head

A Florida man has been charged with attempted murder after sheriff’s deputies responding to a 911 call found a woman in a St. Petersburg home with a hatchet stuck in her head.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that they were called to the Silver Lake Mobile Home Park at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, where they found the woman seriously injured.

The victim, who was identified as Lisa Rogers Eaton, 56, was rushed to a local hospital with the hatchet still protruding from her head, the sheriff’s office said.

She remained in a life-threatening condition in hospital on Saturday, officials said.

Detectives say suspect Michael Dougherty, 40, allegedly fled the house where he was staying with the victim and her husband.

They located his vehicle in Gainesville, 250 miles north of St. Petersburg, and he was arrested by Alachua County sheriff’s deputies in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Mr. Dougherty was incarcerated in the Alachua County Jail on one count of attempted second degree murder. He is awaiting extradition to Pinellas County.

Ms Eaton’s sister Donna Voye said WFLA that she was not expected to survive and that her family members had gathered by her bedside in the hospital to say goodbye.

Ms Voye said her sister and her husband allowed the suspect to stay with them after he lost his job.

‘We can’t understand it because she wouldn’t hurt anyone,’ Ms Voye said WFLA.

“No family should ever receive a call like we did to tell us that a family member is being brutally attacked, like our little sister was,” she said.
