BEAVER, Utah — A Tennessee woman was charged with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of her husband at a Beaver County, Utah motel.
Dorothy Searcy, of Lebanon, 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 said the couple was panhandling in Beaver since their car broke down about a week ago on a trip around the country.
Her adult son, Timothy Wilson, and his girlfriend accompanied them.
Noel said the couple was married for about 10 years. They were from Lebanon.
