Police say that Dr. George Bensimhon drove six hours from Pennsylvania to Ohio and attacked his son-in-law with a pointed crowbar. The son-in-law, also a prominent doctor, was in the middle of a bitter divorce and custody battle with Dr. Bensimhon’s daughter.
Prosecutors say Dr. Bensimhon put on a black ski mask and surgical gloves, hit in the bushes and then ambushed his son-in-law when he came out of the house. He is now being charged with attempted aggravated murder, two counts of attempted murder, two counts of kidnapping and felonious assault. Calls to Dr. Bensimhon’s attorney were not returned.
