Woman held in assault

June 25, 2008|By Arin Gencer

A Carroll County woman accused of throwing hot cooking oil on her husband before fleeing the state was being held yesterday at the Carroll County Detention Center, according to police.

Mary J. Phillips, 43, of Westminster has been charged with two counts each of first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment in two separate incidents, according to Westminster police.

Phillips is accused of throwing hot oil on her husband, Daniel Patrick Phillips, 45, this month. She fled and was later found by Pennsylvania State Police.

Phillips was held in York County before being returned to Maryland, police said.

Detectives determined that a May 28 incident at the Phillips home, during which Daniel Phillips was burned with hot water, was not an accident as initially reported, police said, leading to additional charges against his wife.

Daniel Phillips was reported in stable condition yesterday at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, where he was taken for treatment of burns to his face and torso.
