A Huntington man was charged Monday with attempted murder and other charges after he allegedly shot and wounded his wife last month.

Snyder, who is currently being held without bail in the Emery County Jail, is expected to make his initial appearance in court on Thursday.

Emery County sheriff’s deputies responded to a domestic violence complaint at Snyder’s Huntington home on June 29. When they arrived, deputies found Snyder’s wife, 33-year-old Misty Snyder, suffering from a single gunshot wound, according to police.

The woman was taken to a local hospital, where she had surgery, according to police. Sheriff’s spokeswoman Janalee Luke said Tuesday that the woman was still in the intensive care unit, and is in an induced coma.

"We have not been able to interview her yet," she said.

According to Utah court records, Chad Snyder was convicted of felony drug distribution in 2004. Since then, he has been convicted of numerous misdemeanor crimes, including reckless driving, DUI and unlawful purchase of alcohol by an interdicted person. In 2008, he took a plea in abeyance to misdemeanor assault, and was ordered to undergo domestic violence counseling, according to court records.

State officials urged anyone needing assistance with domestic violence issues to call the Domestic Violence LINKLine at 1-800-897-LINK (5465).
