A jury has found a former Marine guilty of attacking his sleeping, pregnant wife with a hammer. An Onslow County jury found Jonathan Gould guilty Wednesday of attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious bodily injury.

Gould, who was stationed at Camp Lejeune, will serve 18 to 22 years in prison.

His wife, Erin Gould, suffered permanent brain damage in the December 2008 Attack and lost her unborn child.

Authorities said after Jonathan Gould beat his wife, he stabbed himself multiple times and fabricated a story about their home being robbed. Investigators have said Gould later confessed to attacking his wife.
