A 54-year-old Lexington man will be charged with murder in the fatal stabbing of his estranged wife whose body was found Monday at her home on South Lake Drive near Lexington.
William Russell Constance, 54, of 157 Weaver Drive, Lexington is being detained in Georgetown County by law enforcement. Lexington County deputies are on route with an arrest warrant on murder charges, said Sheriff Jimmy Metts.
The warrant alleges that Constance stabbed Margaret Earline Constance, 52, of 1659 South Lake Drive, Lot C., about 25 times at her home.
Detectives have recovered the knife used to kill her.
The motive remains under investigation, Metts said in a press release.
