    OH - William Slabaugh for acid attack on wife, Lake Twp, 2004

    CANTON, Ohio -- A Lake Township man admitted spraying his estranged wife with nitric acid, burning over 50 percent of her body, NewsChannel5 reported.

    William Slabaugh, 68, told Stark County sheriff's deputies he attacked his wife, Becky, because he didn't want her to be with anybody else.

    The alleged attack occurred July 10, a month after Becky, 48, moved out of the house. She was picking up some belongings when she was sprayed in the face with nitric acid and burned severely.
    The couple was in the process of getting a divorce. They had been married for 10 years.

    Slabaugh researched the acid before ordering 500 milliliters from an online chemical supply company for $51. His package arrived July 9.

    William Slabaugh was sentenced to 12 years in prison in December of 2004. The 1st 10 years are for kidnapping and the last 2 are for assault. His listed release date is June of 2016. Don't know if he'll still be alive. He's kinda old. http://www.drc.ohio.gov/OffenderSearch/Search.aspx Type in his name and hit search if you wanna see his info.

    The victim (his wife) is a pretty strong lady: http://www.ssristories.com/show.php?item=903

    This man bought it online. However, any industrial cleaning supply store has these acids as do lapidary stores. The woman who was burned so badly last week was splashed with a small amount of "gold-testing" acid. That comes in a tiny bottle and it still did horrific damage.

    Like so many things (a bullet, a small knife, arsenic, anti-freeze), a little goes a long way.
