Christy Martin's home burglarized
APOPKA, Fla. -- Deputies say someone burglarized the Florida home of boxer Christy Martin while she was in the hospital with gunshot and stab wounds.
Orange County Sheriff's Office spokesman Jim Solomons says a friend contacted authorities after going to the Apopka-area home to pick up some belongings for Martin. It's not clear if anything was stolen.
Christy Martin was a pioneer in women's boxing in the 1990s, once landing on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
The 42-year-old boxer was shot and stabbed at home Tuesday and taken to a hospital after flagging down a motorist for help.
Martin told deputies that her husband attacked her. Deputies are still searching for 66-year-old James Martin.
