KERSHAW COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

An Elgin man has been charged with attempted murder after the stabbing and beating of his wife.

Kershaw County Sheriff James Matthews says deputies arrested Joey Matthew Tyner, 38, after he "cut, stabbed and viciously beat his wife."

Tyner was arrested at his home on Rocky Branch Lane at about 6 a.m. Wednesday after deputies received a 911 call from his wife. Matthews says arriving deputies found Tyner's wife in the street in front of the home, bleeding from head injuries and a stab wound to her arm.

The woman told investigators Tyner beat and stabbed her.

Matthews says deputies found evidence of a struggle at the house, including blood stains throughout. They found Tyner passed out and intoxicated in a bedroom.

Tyner's wife was taken to the hospital.

Matthews says Tyner "has an extensive criminal record." He has previously been arrested on various drug, dui, domestic violence, assault and rape charges.

"After researching Mr. Tyner's criminal history it is once again very apparent that our judicial system has failed," Matthews said. "The injuries this man inflicted on his wife were severe and extensive. He has a history of violence, especially towards women."

Tyner was taken to the Kershaw County Detention Center.
