Tenn. woman charged in husband's death in Utah

Posted: Updated:

BEAVER, Utah (AP) - A Tennessee woman has been charged with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of her husband at a Beaver County motel.

Dorothy Searcy was charged in 5th District Court on Friday, two days after her 45-year-old husband, Reginald Searcy, was stabbed with a steak knife.

He was taken to a hospital, where he later died.

His 44-year-old wife is accused of stabbing him during a domestic dispute in their motel room.

Sheriff Cameron Noel says the couple had been panhandling in Beaver since their car broke down about a week ago on a trip around the country.

They were accompanied by her adult son and his girlfriend.

Noel says the couple had been married for about 10 years.

The couple's hometown in Tennessee was not immediately disclosed.
