Man Charged for Trying to Kill Ex-Wife

A man accused of stabbing his wife before leading police on a chase ending with a crash was arraigned on two felony charges Monday.

40-year-old Gregg Atwood faces charges of assault with intent to murder and assault with intent to do great bodily harm. The charges stem from an October 25th incident, when police say that Atwood stabbed his ex-wife multiple times at a gas station in Auburn, before leading officers on a chase to the Uptown area of Bay City where he crashed into a town home. Atwood’s ex-wife survived her injuries after being treated at a local hospital, and the occupants of the town home were able to escape unharmed.

If convicted, Atwood could face a life sentence.
