Roanoke suspect stopped in Henry County

Thursday, November 7, 2013

A Roanoke man was arrested Wednesday following a traffic stop in Henry County in connection with the alleged assault of his stepdaughter in the city of Roanoke, according to a Roanoke Police Department news release.

The man’s wife was found dead the same day, and an autopsy is being conducted to determine her cause of death, the release stated.

Michael Alan Iseman, 44, of Roanoke, was arrested in Henry County at about 12:35 p.m. Wednesday, the release stated. He was charged with malicious wounding, said Roanoke police spokesman Scott Leamon.

Leamon added that he did not know if Iseman was headed to a destination here or was passing through the area, nor exactly where the traffic stop occurred.

Officers were called to an address on 7th Street in Roanoke at 5:21 a.m. Wednesday after a report of an assault, the release stated.

There, they found Elizabeth Marie Wood, 23, of Roanoke, on the front porch of the home in the 1000 block of 7th Street with multiple stab wounds, it stated. She was taken to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital.

The body of Jeanne Elisabeth Smith, 57, of Roanoke, who is Wood’s mother and Iseman’s wife, was found inside the home, the release stated.

The release did not indicate where Smith’s body was found inside the home.

The investigation determined that Iseman and Smith married on Oct. 3, the release stated. It added that there had been no reported domestic issues at the 7th Street address involving Iseman and Smith.

According to the release, the traffic stop was made with the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, Virginia State Police, the Pittsylvania County Sheriff’s Office and the Virginia Department of Corrections.

Iseman is being held in the Roanoke City Jail, the release added.
