RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A 46-year-old woman has been charged with murder after the body of a man was found near a lake in Raleigh.
Wake County sheriff’s deputies say Joanna Roberta Madonna was charged with murder early Monday.
Madonna was arrested after the body of 64-year-old Jose Manual Perez was found early Sunday near the reservoir.
Property records show the couple owned a home together.
Sheriff’s deputies have not said how Perez was killed. Deputies say a man taking a walk found Perez’s body.
It was not clear if Madonna has an attorney. She was scheduled to appear in court later Monday.
