Malta man indicted on murder charge
MALTA -- A Malta man and retired Long Island police officer has been indicted for the murder of his wife.
In May, the Saratoga County Sheriff's Office responded to a home on Meadow Rue Place in Malta to check on the welfare of Kathleen Wilkinson, who had not been heard from in several days. According to authorities, Kathleen Wilkinson's husband, Charles Wilkinson, 69, answered the door and let the Sheriff's Deputy into the home.
Investigators say the Deputy located the body of Kathleen Wilkinson in a bedroom of the home, with no obvious cause of death. Officials say the investigation revealed that she had been killed by her husband during a domestic dispute and that he then continued to live in the house over the weekend while his wife was deceased.
