The Department of Social Services took an 82-year-old Elgin man into emergency protective custody and Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputies arrested his 65-year-old ex-wife after she allegedly assaulted him April 18. The woman, who lives with him and acts as his caregiver, said she was trying to make her ex-husband put his clothes on and go with her to the store. As they spoke to her, deputies saw the victim come into the room with blood coming from his right ear, a split lower lip and marks on his right wrist.
