    Robert Ruman was arrested after he beat his wife causing serious injuries. He barricaded himself for several hours until a SWAT team was able to get him out of his Deerfield Beach home.

    Officials said Robert Ruman and wife Judy Ruman had been talking about getting a divorce, but the husband objected. That's when he "completely lost control" and made threats to kill her and then himself, an arrest report said.

    Robert Ruman first hit his wife with his fist, then hit her in the head with the fireplace poker, officials said.

    Judy Ruman was taken to Broward Health North to be treated for open wounds on her head and face, along with permanent damage to her nipple and other injuries to her back, torso, arms and legs.

    Robert Ruman continues to be held without bond following the new charge.
