A West Virginia woman awoke from a years-long coma after being brutally assaulted and identified her brother as the attacker, according to local reports.

Wanda Palmer was in a long-term care facility in New Martinsville, West Virginia, after being beaten in her home in June 2020, according to the West Virginia Metro News. When Palmer was discovered, Jackson County Sheriff Ross Mellenger said she had been attacked so brutally that authorities believed she was dead, the paper reported.

Palmer’s health care facility contacted authorities last week to let them know that the woman had emerged from her coma, the Metro News reported.

NBC News has contacted the Jackson County Sheriff for comment.

Medical staff told authorities that despite brain damage from the attack, Palmer was able to talk enough to identify her attacker, Metro News reported.

“The keys to the whole case were with the victim herself and because she was unable to communicate, we had nothing left. Now low and lo, two years later and boom, she’s awake and able to tell us exactly what happened,” Mellenger told Metro News.

Daniel Palmer, Wanda Palmer’s brother, was arrested after being identified as the attacker, according to Metro News.

“He didn’t argue with us or anything. There was a bit of a surprise, but not quite,” Mellenger told Metro News of the arrest.

Officials said they believed Daniel Palmer allegedly attacked his sister with a machete or an axe.

He was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and willful injury.

It was not immediately clear whether Daniel Palmer had engaged a lawyer.
