It happened at a residence on Ivy Creek Drive in Nicholson on Tuesday, July 29.<br /> <br /> Mangum said deputies arrived at the home to find the woman in the yard with serious cuts to her neck and hand. Authorities found McCarthy on the front porch with cut and stab wounds to his neck and abdomen. Five children in the home had escaped through a window and were at a neighbor's home during the assaults, according to the sheriff.<br /> <br /> Both adults were rushed to Athens Regional Medical Center.<br /> <br /> During the investigation, Mangum said authorities obtained warrants for McCarthy, and implicated him in the case.
