GREAT MILLS, Md. (AP) — St. Mary’s County police have charged a man with second-degree murder in the death of his estranged wife, whose body was found in the backyard of a home in Great Mills.

James Mitchell Carter, 46, of Lexington Park was arrested Tuesday. He is charged in the death of Kimberly D. Carter, 38, of Great Mills. She was found early Tuesday suffering from injuries to her head and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers say they were called to the home for a report of a suspicious person and found a naked man outside. The man reported that he’d been visiting the woman when another man entered the home, and a struggle ensued. The naked man fled.
