Police revive South Jersey woman attacked by husband

Authorities say police officers revived an unconscious woman after she was attacked by her 78-year-old husband.

The officers went to the Evesham home shortly before noon Tuesday after a caller reported a dead woman was in the front yard.

The woman was unconscious, but officers used CPR and a defibrillator to revive her minutes later. She remained hospitalized in stable condition Wednesday, but further details about her were not disclosed.

John Teti was charged with attempted homicide, aggravated assault and evidence tampering.

They say evidence at the scene led police to believe that the woman had been attacked. He was arrested at his Barrington home a short time later.

Teti’s bail was set at $350,000. He was due to make his initial court appearance Wednesday afternoon.
