Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police charge man with murder in wife's death at a home


CHARLOTTE, North Carolina — Police in Charlotte have charged a man in the death of his wife in a home on the city's east side.

A statement from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police says 23-year-old Ray Edward Matheson was charged late Monday with murder in the death of his wife, 24-year-old Amber Nicole Matheson.

Patrol officers responding to a child neglect call last Sunday found a man suffering from what appeared to be self-inflicted knife wounds. Officers also found a woman's body inside the home.

Ray Matheson was taken to Carolinas Medical Center. Police said that upon his release from the hospital, he will be transferred to custody of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office.
