FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)   A husband is facing domestic battery charges after police found his wife bruised and cut with blood on her.

According to the affidavit for probable cause, police responded to the 2600-block of Edsall Avenue after 3 p.m. on April 20. The victim told police she and her husband, Kenneth Quinn, had gotten into an argument at her sister-in-law’s house and were asked to leave. The argument continued once they got home.

The victim told police her husband accused her of having an affair and after telling Quinn she wanted to leave, he started repeatedly hitting her face and head. She said he then pulled her hair and, once she was on the ground, kicked her in the side. When police arrived, they found the victim crying with blood on her. Quinn was out of breath and sweating

The entire fight was witnessed by one woman, who said it happened very quickly. The witness said Quinn grabbed his wife by the hair and dragged her before throwing her to the ground, kicking or kneeing her. The married couples’ two children also saw the beating.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment.

According to the information from police, the couple had been together for 10 years and married for eight. Quinn had previously been convicted of domestic battery in August 2000.
