LAGRANGE, N.Y. – Authorities say a 50-year-old Hudson Valley man has been charged with attempted murder after he stabbed his wife and teenage daughter with an ice pick.
The Dutchess County Sheriff's Office says Kerry Peck stabbed his wife and 16-year-old daughter in the neck at 1 a.m. Tuesday inside their home in the town of LaGrange, near Poughkeepsie.
Officials say the injuries weren't life-threatening.
Peck fled the scene and later crashed into a vehicle in New Windsor in neighboring Orange County. Two people in the other vehicle were injured.
Police later found Peck in a vehicle on a front lawn. Officers used a stun gun after he refused to drop the ice pick.
He's being held in Orange County Jail on $25,000 bail.
It couldn't be immediately determined if Peck had a lawyer.
