DELTONA — A central Florida man is in jail after deputies say he wore a disguise while slashing his wife's face, then made up a story about a home invasion to cover up his actions.

But Volusia County Sheriff's investigators say 29-year-old Timorthy Hunter confessed after they confronted him with inconsistencies in his story. He remained in the Volusia County Jail without bond on Friday.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal ( ) reports deputies found Kristin Sottosanti with multiple cuts on her face after she called 911 Wednesday night. She told them a masked man had come into her house and slashed her face.

During the call, Hunter was heard coming into the house and expressing surprise at his wife's injuries.

Hunter is charged with aggravated battery and tampering with evidence.
