St. Mary's County police charged a man with second-degree murder in the death of his estranged wife, whose body was found in the backyard of a home in Great Mills, Md.

James Mitchell Carter, 46, of Lexington Park was arrested Tuesday. He is charged in the death of 38-year-old Kimberly D. Carter of Great Mills. She was found early Tuesday suffering from injuries to her head and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers responding to a suspicious person report at a residence in Great Mills, Md., about 3:30 a.m. found a naked man outside, authorities said. He told them he was visiting a woman inside the residence when another man entered. After a struggle between the men, the naked man ran from the home, authorities said.

Police searched the area and found a woman’s body in the backyard.
