A Leesburg man has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of his wife.
The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office says deputies responded to a home Saturday night for a report of a person injured during a fall. Fifty-nine-year-old Catherine Combs-Lafleur was pronounced dead at the scene.
Deputies say her injuries were consistent with an assault. After an investigation, her husband, 61-year-old Steven Combs-Lafleur, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.
Combs-Lafleur is being held without bond.
