Salisbury Man Charged With Attempted Murder of Mother


SALISBURY, Md. (WBOC) – A 22-year-old Salisbury man is in jail after police say he stabbed his mother and tried to burn their house down.

According to court documents obtained by WBOC, an officer from the Salisbury Police Department responded to a domestic assault at a home on Stockbridge Drive in Salisbury on October 11.

Upon arrival, the officer met with Laurie Menzl who was bleeding from the face and hand. The documents state that Menzl told the officer her son had stabbed her and said he wanted to kill them both by lighting the house on fire.

Her son, Conner Lee Salmon, was also at home and told the responding officer, “There’s no fire. The chair wouldn’t light,” according to the court documents.

Salmon was then taken into custody. Police later charged him with attempted first-degree murder, arson, assault, reckless endangerment and intent to injure with a dangerous weapon.

According to court documents, further investigation revealed Salmon has stabbed Menzl in the hand with a screwdriver and in the ribs with a kitchen knife and had doused some furniture in lighter fluid.

Salmon is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on November 5.
