Senior Citizen Charged With First-Degree Murder In Wife’s Death

SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) — A Silver Spring man has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of his wife.

Montgomery County police charged 68-year-old Henry Hutchins early Sunday morning with killing his wife, 62-year-old Carol Carter.

Carter was found dead Saturday afternoon in the bedroom of the couple’s apartment in the White Oak area of Silver Spring. She had suffered trauma to the upper body. Police have not released details about the nature of her injuries.

Police say Hutchins called police to report that his wife was dead. He was immediately taken into custody for questioning.

Now that he’s been charged, he’s being held without bond. A bond review hearing is scheduled for Monday.
