Middlesboro Police say a man failed to provide medical help for a woman in Bell County. They charged Erstill Sheckles with attempted murder.
Police say the charges stem from an incident May 18 that involved Tammy Baker, at a home on Webb Lane in Middlesboro. Police say Sheckles caused serious injury to Baker on several occasions during the night, and didn't get her medical care.
Baker was flown to a Tennessee hospital for treatment. Police say she is still hospitalized, weeks later, because of the extent of her injuries.
