GP Area Woman Jailed for Attacking & Hurting Husband at North Valley Home

A Grants Pass area woman was jailed for attacking and injuring her husband in the North Valley area.

The Josephine County Sheriff's Office reports deputies responded to the incident at a home in the 7500-block of Monument Drive on Monday.

Deputies said a woman called 9-1-1 to report that 24-year-old Emily Nicole Karen Denney hit her husband in the head with a blow torch, leaving him with a small cut above his eyes. The caller -- who identified herself as the victim's sister-in-law -- said the suspect left and went to a nearby home.

Upon further investigation, deputies concluded that Denney struck her husband in the head with a propane cylinder, causing a 2/3-inch laceration which appeared to need stitches. The victim complained of blurred vision, but refused attention from American Medical Response. He said he would go to the hospital for evaluation.

According to the report, Denney was contacted and admitted to striking her spouse with the propane tank.

Emily Denney was subsequently lodged at the Josephine County Jail on felony charges of 2nd-Degree Domestic Assault and Unlawful Use of a Weapon. She was being held without bail.
