April 8, 2019

ELKO, Nev. (AP) — A northeast Nevada couple involved in an apparent domestic dispute has been hospitalized after Elko County sheriff’s deputies say the woman was shot in the chest and her husband stabbed in the neck.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports Brian and Courtney Rowley were air-lifted to a Salt Lake City hospital Sunday following the dispute at a Spring Creek residence.

Their conditions were unknown on Monday.

Detectives are still investigating but they believe Brian Rowley shot his wife.

The newspaper reports they obtained a marriage license in Elko County in April 2012. It says Brian Rowley was arrested for battery constituting domestic violence in March 2007 but the charges were dismissed.

He was arrested for battery again a month later and received a suspended sentence in February 2008 on the condition he stayed out of trouble for a year.
