GASTON COUNTY, N.C. —

Police arrested a Cherryville city employee for embezzlement, just hours after arresting her husband for assault.

Jennifer Hoyles is charged with embezzling nearly $2,600 since January.

Friday morning, officers arrested her husband Mark Hoyle.

Officials said he beat a man so bad it partially collapsed the man's lung.

The couple is free on bond.
