A Thomasville man accused of a November 28 beating in which his wife suffered broken arms and crushed bones in her hands was taken into custody by Thomas County authorities this week.
Terry Donell Sloans was transferred on Thursday to Colquitt County Jail on Thursday, police said, as Mary Williams Sloans remained in the hospital being treated for her injuries.
Police responded at about 9:45 on Nov. 28 to 109 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.
Terry Sloans caused the wounds “with a wooden-type club, object that was used in the assault,” Moultrie Police Department Inv. Ben Morris said. “Officers were dispatched to that location where they found (Mary Sloans) with what appeared to be broken bones in her right arm and left arm.”
Sloans also suffered a crushed left elbow and crushed bones on both hands, police said.
Morris took arrest warrants on Tuesday and he believes that Terry Sloans’ employer accompanied him to turn himself in to the Thomas County Sheriff’s Office.
Terry Sloans, 53, 714 Ralley Ave., was charged with aggravated battery.
