Husband Arrested in Wife's Stabbing Death

The husband of a 17-year-old girl found fatally stabbed at their Grant County home is under arrest.

Sheriff's Chief Deputy Jack Johnson says the 24-year-old man is hospitalized with wounds and remains under police guard following his arrest.

Their three-week-old baby was found in their home unharmed.

Authorities were called to the rural Woodman home yesterday where they found the young mother dead. Her husband was bleeding from several wounds. He was taken to Boscobel Hospital, then transported to University Hospital in Madison.

Johnson says the couple had been married three months and apparently had some sort of dispute. Social Services was called to help place the infant girl.
