Roosevelt Man Charged With Attempted Murder of Wife
A New York City corrections officer accused of shooting his wife in the face during an argument at their Roosevelt home last month has been indicted on upgraded charges, prosecutors said.
Brian Martin pleaded not guilty at Nassau County court Tuesday to second-degree attempted murder, criminal obstruction of breathing and menacing. The 36-year-old was initially arrested on charges of assault and criminal use of a firearm.
Authorities have said Martin shot his wife when an argument escalated at their house on William Street on Dec. 21. Both he and his wife reportedly work at Riker’s Island.
Judge Helene Gugerty set bail for Martin at $350,000 bond or $150,000 cash. He is due back in court Feb. 27 and faces up to 30 years in prison, if convicted.
