MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A Martinsburg man has been charged in the death of his wife.
Media outlets report 29-year-old Rickie L. Greenfield Jr. was arraigned in Berkeley County Magistrate Court on a first-degree murder charge Thursday.
A criminal complaint says the couple had argued on Wednesday after 29-year-old Jill Greenfield told her husband she wanted to leave him. Her body was found in a bedroom and a blood-stained hammer was recovered from the scene.
Her body has been taken to a medical examiner for an autopsy.
Rickie Greenfield is being held without bond at the Eastern Regional Jail. Jail records didn't indicate whether he has an attorney.
