Former Bush Attorney Charged With Attempting to Kill Wife

In a very ugly case of alleged domestic violence, John Farren, former Deputy Counsel to George W. Bush, is charged with attempting to kill his wife, a lawyer with Skadden, Arps in Washington. The incident occurred at their home in New Canaan, CT.

Police said Farren attacked his wife at their New Canaan home Wednesday night. According to police, she passed out during the attack but regained consciousness and fled with their children to the house of a neighbor, who called 911. There, police found her bleeding from her head, face and body.

She is reportedly at Norwalk Hospital in stable condition with a broken jaw, a broken nose and other injuries.
