Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP)- A Delaware man is accused of beating his wife, who's accused of kidnapping her 8-year-old daughter and trying to poison her ex-husband with a milkshake.
           
The News Journal of Wilmington reports 36-year-old William Martineau is charged with second-degree assault in the fight with 40-year-old Jessica Ewing, who's charged with offensive touching. Dover police say in recently obtained court documents that officers responded to the couple's home this summer and found them on top of one another with obvious assault marks.
           
They say an investigation found the two had fought and Ewing repeatedly hit Martineau, who then whipped her with a .40-caliber pistol, breaking her nose. The July fight happened about a month after police accused Ewing of trying to poison her ex-husband during a custody battle for their daughter.
