EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) -- An East St. Louis woman is jailed on $1 million bond after being accused in the weekend stabbing death of her husband.

Prosecutors in southwestern Illinois' St. Clair County charged 44-year-old Tammy Carpenter with first-degree murder in the death early Saturday of 58-year-old Jerome Carpenter.

Authorities say the stabbing took place after an argument, and that Jerome Carpenter died later at a hospital.

Online court records don't show whether Tammy Carpenter has an attorney. She does not have a listed home telephone number.

Jerome Carpenter's funeral arrangements are pending.
