Pemberton man charged in wife's fatal stabbing
A man from Pemberton has been charged in the fatal stabbing of his wife.
The Burlington County prosecutor said Sunday Kenneth Arsenault, 59, is charged with murder and weapons offenses.
A report of a woman screaming for help sent police to the home Saturday around 10 p.m., and officers reported finding him "on top of his wife on the ground outside of their residence."
Lorraine Arsenault, 61, was taken to Lourdes Emergency Department, where she was pronounced dead Saturday just before 11 p.m.
According to police, the motive for the attack is under investigation.
Arsenault was taken to the county jail pending a court appearance.
It was unclear whether he has an attorney and a message left at his number Sunday wasn't immediately returned.
