Peak, SC (WLTX) -- Newberry County Sheriff Lee Foster says the body found by boaters Friday in Broad River has been identified and the victim's husband has been charged with murder.

Deputies say that soon after the body of 42-year-old Cindy Marie Koon was found, her husband, 42-year old Allen Lee Koon, reported his wife missing.

Investigators say they searched Koon's home and found incriminating evidence that led to his arrest.

According Coroner Newton, the body was beaten, stabbed and the fatal wound came from a slashed jugular vein.

Officials say that the couple has a long, documented history of domestic problems.

Bond has not yet been set for Koon.
