ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt.—A 91-year-old Vermont man is in jail and facing charges he beat his 84-year-old wife.

On Thursday Louis Albiser, of St. Johnsbury, pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of domestic assault in Caledonia Superior Court-Criminal Division.

A judge ordered Albiser to undergo a competency evaluation and ruled he can only be released into the custody of a responsible adult.

Court documents say Albiser's wife Cecile was taken to the hospital Wednesday night after emergency crews responded to a report that she was unconscious.

The Caledonia Record ( says Louis Albiser was reported to be confused about why and how he got to the hospital on Wednesday.
