Tuscaloosa Man Charged With Trying to Kill Wife with Knife, Vehicle
A Tuscaloosa man has been charged with attempted murder after he allegedly stabbed his wife multiple times and tried to hit her with a car.
According to court documents filed Friday morning, Tuscaloosa Police were called to the 600 block of Black Bears Way near Central High School on the morning of December 4th.
A woman there was found suffering from "several stab wounds throughout her body," and police believe her husband, Mickey Calvin Burgin, stabbed her several times during an argument.
Witnesses reportedly told investigators that Burgin, 45, assaulted the woman and stabbed her several times before getting into a vehicle and attempting to strike her with it.
They also told investigators that Burgin said he would kill the woman.
Burgin fled the scene before police arrived and had evaded law enforcement until he was arrested by US Marshals out of state this Wednesday.
Burgin has been charged with attempted murder and placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail where court records say his bond is set at $60,000.
He remained jailed Friday morning.
