BURLEY, Idaho (AP) — A southern Idaho man has been charged with attempted murder after a detective said he cut a woman with a kitchen knife.

Joseph A. Price, a 43-year-old Burley man, is also charged with mayhem, battery and other charges, The Times-News reported. He has not yet entered a plea and calls to the Cassia County Public Defender's office were not immediately returned. A phone number for Price could not be located.

Cassia County Sheriff Detective Lieutenant Kevin Horak said deputies responded to a Burley home earlier this week and found a woman who was severely bleeding, with injuries to her head, face and hands.

“Two of her fingers were severely cut,” Horak said, “and there’s a possibility that she’ll lose those fingers.”

Horak said deputies applied a tourniquet to the woman's arm, and she was taken to a hospital for treatment. Two children witnessed the violence, police said.

Price was arrested a short time later in the nearby city of Twin Falls. A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for March 31.
