Pre-wedding jitters?

I've never been married or even engaged, but I can understand how people can get cold feet in the days leading up to their wedding. That said, there are probably healthier ways to break things off:
Police in Connecticut say a masked man who attacked a woman in her home last month was the victim's fiance and a town official.

Ansonia police charged Keith Maynard Thursday morning with second-degree assault, unlawful restraint and reckless endangerment. Maynard, an alderman in the town, is to be arraigned in Superior Court later in the day.

Police say the woman, who married Maynard four days after the July 1 attack, came home that day to find a masked man in the couple's house. She told police the man threw a blanket over her head, hit her with a bat and ran out the back door. She suffered minor abrasions.
So, he went to the trouble of pretending to be an intruder and beating her up with a baseball bat, but couldn't work up the courage over the next few days to actually, you know, tell her that he wanted to back out of the wedding?

I don't believe in blaming the victim, but damn, she must be kinda scary.
