Case Of Marine Accused Of Beating Wife Delayed; Victim's Condition Improves

A Marine accused of beating his pregnant wife into a coma was supposed to go before an Onslow County judge Thursday. But the district attorney in the case says that appearance has been continued.

Authorities say 24-year-old Cpl. Jonathan Gould used a hammer to beat his wife, 26-year-old Erin Prince-Gould, then stabbed himself multiple times to fabricate a break-in at the couple's home. Investigators have said he later confessed to attacking his wife.

Thursday the sheriff's department says the victim continues to improve at a Wilmington hospital. Erin Prince-Gould is now in stable condition, according to investigators.

A web site has been put up by Prince-Gould's friends with updates about her, and soliciting donations to help her family with expenses.
