MARTINSBURG, ,W.Va. — A former Berkeley County Sheriff’s deputy accused of assaulting and battering his wife multiple times and threatening to shoot her is set to go to trial in October after he pleaded not guilty Monday in Berkeley County Circuit Court.
A jury indicted Robert Lippman, 43, last month on numerous charges, including six counts of domestic battery, two counts of domestic assault and one count of malicious assault.
Lippman waived his right to be tried on the charges within the current term of the court.
When asked by the judge whether she wished to continue to have contact with her husband, Cheryle Lippman stood up in the back of the gallery and responded: “Yes, sir.”
The court also was advised that the couple continue to live together.
