ROCKLAND, Mass. (AP) - Prosecutors say a Rockland man has been charged with fatally stabbing his wife.

The Plymouth district attorney's office says police responded to calls of a stabbing at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

When officers arrived they found a woman lying in the driveway of a home suffering from an apparent stab wound with neighbors helping her.

The woman, 52-year-old Patricia Langley, was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Her husband, 56-year-old Richard Langley was placed under arrest and is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in Hingham District Court on a murder charge.

It could not immediately be determined in Richard Langley had a layer. The death remains under investigation.
