PALATKA, Fla. -- A former corrections officer is accused of stabbing his wife and step-daughter during a fight.

Charles Hendrix is facing two counts of attempted first-degree homicide.

The sheriff's office says Hendrix got into an altercation with his wife and step-daughter at their home on Old Peniel Road early this morning.

One woman is at Putnam Community Medical Center and the other is at UF & Shands Hospital in Gainesville. Both have non life-threatening injuries.

Hendrix spent 30 months on probation for an accidental shooting incident at the same home in 2011.

Hendrix, who was not married to his wife at the time, shot her in the face with his .40 caliber Glock handgun.

"If they want the truth they should listen to me," said the woman in an exclusive interview with Action News in July of 2011. "It was an accident."

Hendrix was eventually convicted of assault with a deadly weapon and received 30 months probation.

After the incident, Hendrix was fired from his job as a corrections officer at the Bradford County Jail.
