Wife accuses Maryland county official of domestic violence

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A Maryland county official’s wife has accused him of domestic violence.
The Herald-Mail reports Katrina Baker wrote in a Washington County District Court filing that county Board of Commissioners President Terry Baker slapped, shoved and verbally abused her over two separate occasions this month at their homes near Clear Spring and in Frost, West Virginia.
Baker was served with a temporary protective order Wednesday at the home near Clear Spring. It says the 62-year-old cannot contact his wife or enter their home.
No criminal charges have been filed against Baker in West Virginia or Maryland. He didn’t return the newspaper’s phone and text messages seeking comment.
The Republican is seeking re-election to a fourth term in November’s election.
