Walter Benton is locked up on a half million dollars bond on two felony charges.

Police arrested Benton over the weekend after a two day search.

This morning in court Benton appeared to be crying during his few minutes before the judge.

According to police, Benton's neighbor heard screams coming from the apartment Thursday. When she went next door to check on her friend Jessica, she found Walter Benton allegedly punching his wife, who was lying on the floor in a pool of blood.

Benton took off, keeping police busy searching for the suspect.

His wife Jessica suffered serious injuries from the attack. The police report states Benton identified her husband as the attacker. While it's uncertain what provoked the violent stabbing, Benton has struggled with domestic violence in the past.

Jessica is still in a Toledo Hospital recovering.
