Altman Update

Posted on 31st August 2016 at 06:15

Bernie Altman, 92, of Kelso remains in critical condition at PeaceHealth Southwest Washington Medical Center, continuing his recovery from a beating and stabbing that took place at his home last Thursday. The long-time Kelso teachers and local mental health care advocate was found in his home, bound and bleeding. Altman was taken by LifeFlight to Vancouver, where he’s being treated for broken bones, and for bleeding in his brain. David Jack Altman, 52, Bernie Altman’s son, continues to be held without bail on charges of attempted first-degree murder, third-degree assault and resisting arrest, following yesterday’s arraignment.
