Spring Hill man accused of seriously injuring his wife

SPRING HILL — A 48-year-old Spring Hill man faces an aggravated battery charge after he seriously injured his wife on New Year's Day, authorities say.

Robert Smith Guyton slapped Julie Guyton with an open hand about midnight on Monday at their residence on Gates Circle, according to Hernando Sheriff's Office report. Then, about three hours later, Robert Guyton punched her on the right side of her body a few times while she was sitting in a chair, the report said. Julie Guyton told deputies she fell to floor and her husband kicked, stomped on and punched her.

Julie Guyton drove herself to a local hospital, where she was treated for bleeding from the ears and a broken left hand, the report said.

Julie Guyton told deputies that Robert Guyton had battered her on previous occasions and prevented her from leaving by locking her in a bedroom. This time, she said, Robert Guyton fell asleep without locking the door.

Guyton was arrested without incident. He remained without bail in the Hernando County Detention Center on Wednesday.
