TAMPA — Trevor Summers held a pillow over his estranged wife's face during two days of captivity with him, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

It was a king-sized pillow and he held it down with both hands, spokeswoman Debbie Carter said.

Already charged with kidnapping and two other crimes, the Riverview man now faces a count of attempted first-degree murder of Alisa Summers, a 37-year-old mother of five.

He was moved Tuesday from a hospital to the Hillsborough County Jail, his neck showing slash marks self-inflicted before his arrest.

He is accused of entering his wife's Valrico home early Saturday, sending children away, tying her wrists and holding her in an SUV until deputies found them about 10:30 a.m. Monday. A witness at a Walgreen's had reported seeing her escape, bound, from the vehicle Saturday night but seeing a man push her back in.

The wife filed for divorce in late 2016.
