FALLSTON, Md. — A Fallston man is charged with murder after police say he shot and killed his wife at their home.

The Harford County Sheriff’s Office says in a news release that 54-year-old Ricardo Muscolino turned himself in to deputies who came to his house Wednesday night.

Muscolino’s wife, 48-year-old Lara Muscolino, suffered multiple gunshot wounds. She died at a hospital.

The sheriff’s office says the couple’s three children were home at the time of the shooting. They were not injured.

Investigators have not detailed a motive beyond saying there was a domestic dispute between the couple. Muscolino is charged with first- and second-degree murder.

Online court records do not list a lawyer for Muscolino.
