Jacksonville Woman Stabbed To Death; Husband Is Suspect

A local woman is dead and her husband has been charged in her murder.

Forty-eight-year-old Eddie Whitson has been charged with the murder of his wife, 46-year-old Connie Whitson.

Authorities say her husband Eddie stabbed her to death Tuesday night at the Sandy Run Apartment Complex in Jacksonville where they live.

Lawmen say the woman, who received multiple stab wounds to the torso, later died at her neighbor's home.

Authorities found Eddie, back at home, with a weapon still in hand just minutes after the murder.

Eddie Whitson is at the Onslow County Jail without bond.

Authorities are still looking for a motive that led to the deadly domestic dispute.
