Murder charges have been filed against a southern New Jersey man accused of fatally stabbing his wife during a heated argument inside their home.

Vineland police Lt. Thomas Ulrich said officers found 56-year-old Sharon Carter's body in the living room around 10:20 p.m. Friday after receiving reports of a "possible homicide." He said the couple had a history of domestic problems, but would not immediately disclose further details.

Carter's 64-year-old husband, William, was found at the scene and taken to Atlantic City Regional Medical Center for unspecified treatment. He remained there Saturday afternoon, but Ulrich said Carter - who also faces weapons charges - would be remanded to the Cumberland County Jail once he was "medically cleared."

Carter's bail was set at $750,000 after the charges were filed Saturday.
