(2008-07-23)
(WOUB) - Washington County authorities say a man who tried to kill his former girlfriend is now in custody.

Sherriff Larry Mincks says 19-year-old Thaddeus Salomon was arrested Tuesday afternoon for allegedly stabbing 23-year-old Susan Lawson.

Lawson was stabbed in the lower back early Tuesday morning outside her home in New Matamoras.

She was transported by helicopter to Grant Medical Center in Columbus with what were called "life-threatening injuries."

Salomon faces attempted murder charges and is behind bars in Pleasants County, West Virginia, awaiting extradition.
