Md. man charged in wife’s killing

The Cecil County, Md., Sheriff’s Office has charged a man in the fatal stabbing of his wife in their Cherry Hill apartment.

Forty-year-old James Claude Winters is charged with first- and second-degree murder in the stabbing death of his wife, 39-year-old Marchal Elizabeth Adams Sunday night.

Winters is being held without bond.

Deputies say a downstairs neighbor called police after hearing a violent argument in the apartment. Adams was found dead on the floor of the couple’s bedroom. Police say Winters was standing in the hallway, covered in blood.

Deputies say Winters and Adams married about six months ago.
