West Virginia police: Woman branded with horseshoe, fork

Posted August 30

— Police say a West Virginia man allegedly branded a woman with a horseshoe and a fork.

News outlets report Ervin Harold of Bluefield was charged with malicious wounding and domestic assault.

Bluefield Police Detective J.B. Fox says Harold allegedly held the woman against a wall last week and branded her twice with a horseshoe and once with a fork. Fox says Harold allegedly held the horseshoe with a coat hanger so he wouldn't burn himself.

The woman sought treatment at a hospital.

Harold was being held Tuesday on $10,500 bond in the Bluefield City Jail. It wasn't immediately known whether he had an attorney.
