The deputies told McGuffin they needed to see and speak with her to make sure she was OK.

McGuffin’s wife came out of the bedroom and as both individuals made their way outside to speak with the deputies, the deputies noticed the wife had difficulty moving. Soon thereafter, the wife told deputies that her husband, McGuffin, had assaulted her.
