The ongoing sage of suspended Nevada District Judge Elizabeth Halverson just got stranger. On Thursday night, her husband Edward Halverson, 49, was arrested and charged with attempted murder and battery her with a frying pan. He has a long criminal record. Judge Halverson was known to berate and ridicule her husband in court, referring to him as “Evil Ed.”
The battery counts include both battery with a deadly weapon and battery with substantial bodily harm. Judge Halverson reportedly suffered severe injuries to her face, chest and upper arms, but is expected to survive.
Halverson, 50, has been suspended from the court after bizarre and offensive conduct on the bench, here. She is still receiving her $130,000 judicial salary.
She recently lost her primary bid and is now trying to defend herself from a possible lifetime ban from the bench.
Her husband has a record with at least 10 prior arrests in three states and was convicted of three felonies. He previously served almost four years on those convictions.
