(WJLA) - The wife of an Army soldier has been arrested and accused of stabbing her husband to death at their Laurel home last Friday.

Marquita Sutton, 30, turned herself in to Anne Arundel County authorities Saturday, a day after her husband was found dead inside their Frostwood Road home.

Johnnie Sutton, 38, was found dead of multiple stab wounds at about 10:30 a.m. Friday, Anne Arundel County Police officials say. His death was first described as suspicious before classifying it as murder.

Marquita has been charged with 2nd degree murder and remains in custody. The couple's 21-month-old child, who was at home when the stabbing happened, was not hurt.

The child is now in the custody of relatives.
