Man pleads not guilty to breaking wife’s leg, not calling help

EVERETT (AP) — A Snohomish man accused of tackling his wife and breaking her leg in multiple places, then waiting three days to summon help, has pleaded not guilty to charges of assault and criminal mistreatment.

The Daily Herald reports that prosecutors allege Shaun Horn failed to let the injured woman call for help.

Deputy Prosecutor Paul Stern says in court papers that the 51-year-old woman was on the floor for nine hours and that three days passed before Horn summoned help for her.

A judge set bail this week at $100,000.

Sheriff’s deputies found the woman on Feb. 21 at the couple’s rural home. The newspaper says that after a hospital stay, she has been transferred to a convalescent facility and is currently unable to walk.
