A millionaire Texan businessman has been charged with the murder of his wife, who was stabbed to death at their luxury home in Worcestershire, police have said.
Lucy Landry, 38, was found fatally injured at the couple's £800,000 house on the exclusive Besford Court Estate near Pershore, Worcestershire, late on Monday.
A post-mortem examination revealed she died as a result of multiple stab wounds to her chest.
Neighbours said she staggered outside and screamed for help, but she could not be saved and was later pronounced dead in hospital.
Her husband Harold, 63, who is believed to have made his fortune in engineering, was arrested at the scene.
Detective Chief Inspector Lee Davenport, senior investigating officer in the case, said: "We would like to reassure residents living in the area that this was an isolated incident and that we are not looking for anyone else in connection with Mrs Landry's murder. I would also like to thank local residents for their co-operation and understanding during the course of the investigation so far."
Mr Landry will appear before magistrates in Worcester on Friday.
Neighbour Rachel Clarke paid tribute to Mrs Landry, describing her as a "beautiful woman" and an "amazing musician".
The 48-year-old neighbour said Mr and Mrs Landry had lived on the affluent estate for eight years but their marriage had turned sour and they were planning to divorce. She said Mrs Landry had become a "recluse", rarely leaving the couple's imposing detached home for weeks at a time.
"She was a recluse in the house and Harold was doing everything, running errands, doing the school run, answering the door, picking up the phone. We rarely saw her," she said.
The couple's seven-year-old daughter, Harriet, and Mrs Landry's 14-year-old son, James, from a previous marriage were believed to be staying with relatives.
