A man accused of nearly beating ex-wife to death in Carson City last month has been captured in northern Arizona and was returned to Carson City over the weekend.
Richard Pura was booked into the Carson City Jail on charges of Attempted Murder with a Deadly Weapon as well as Domestic Battery. Reports say Pura’s ex-wife was very severely injured and was left basically to die in the hills off Sierra Vista Lane on the east side of Prison Hill.
Authorities say the victim crawled out to a road where she was discovered by a passer-by. The victim was quickly transported to Carson Tahoe Hospital where she’ll need considerable care including possibly facial reconstruction.
Reports say Pura was arrested four other times for domestic battery on his ex-wife. His bail was set at $150,000.
