Prosecutors: Woman used fire extinguisher to kill husband

(AP) - Authorities say a woman fatally beat her husband with a fire extinguisher inside their Burlington County home.



County prosecutors say 42-year-old Laciana Tinsley is charged with murder and a weapons offense in the death of 74-year-old Douglas Tinsley. He was pronounced dead at the couple's Willingboro home on Monday afternoon.



Authorities say Laciana Tinsley struck her husband in the head multiple times with the fire extinguisher. But a motive for the attack has not been disclosed.



Laciana Tinsley was due to make her initial court appearance on Tuesday, where a judge will decide whether to set bail or keep her in custody until her trial.



A cause of death for Douglas Tinsley has not been determined.
