Police in Montgomery County are investigating the stabbing death of a Silver Spring woman whose husband has turned himself in for the crime.

The body of 47-year-old Ana Ayala was found in the front passenger seat of a car at around 8:15 Saturday morning in the 8600 block of Garland Avenue. Ayala was later pronounced dead of her wounds at a local hospital.

Ayala's estranged husband, 44-year-old Hector Granados, turned himself in to police at around 12:30 p.m. Saturday. A witness told investigators that Granados approached the car while Ayala was inside and stabbed her after a short conversation.

Granados is scheduled to appear before a District Court Commissioner later Saturday. Charges are expected to be confirmed a short time later.
