The victim, meanwhile, was treated for severe injuries. Police said she will likely lose her eye. 

A source told WBZ-TV that Stelzer was in an ‘altered mental state’ or suffering a ‘possible mental health issue’ at the time of the domestic violence incident.

His neighbor, Fred Siegel, told the local station: ‘It’s unfortunate you never want to see anybody get hurt and you certainly don’t want to see someone die over something.
