    CHELSEA — A man who allegedly threw an acid-like substance on his estranged wife during an attack that also left her with a broken arm and broken eye socket waived extradition today to face charges.

    Herbert Rodgers, 52, of White River Junction, was held overnight in Lebanon, N.H., where he was taken for treatment for exposure to the substances. He was expected to be arraigned in Vermont District Court late today, charged with aggravated first-degree domestic assault, domestic assault, unlawful restraint and maiming.

    Vermont State Police summoned to the scene early Sunday found two teenage girls who said they believed their mother was being killed. As Trooper Hugh O’Donnell arrested Rodgers at gunpoint, victim Carmen Tarleton, 39, crawled out of a bedroom and told him acid had been poured over her.

    Thank God she made it, her love for her daughters, and all the support from the community surely has helped her. I hope they charge her ex with attempted murder among other things.

    My dearest Mom3dd,
    Many prayed and the outcome was an answer from God.
    Many thought that Carmen would not live.
    Many prayed for Carmen and her family.
    Many are still praying. Thank-you Mom3dd for your prayers.

    So much Love and Respect for you,
