    Police charged Damon Willie White, 34, in the killing of his ex-wife and the setting of her apartment on fire.

    Investigators believe Thelma Wynn, 35, was stabbed to death in a domestic dispute yesterday in the 6000 block of Majors Lane in Columbia, Md.

    The suspect is hospitalized in critical but stable condition. He will be taken into police custody after he's released.

    NBC 11 News reports that Wynn had four children who lived at the residence. The children, ranging in age from 6 to 17, are in custody of family members. Neighbors also told 11 News Wynn’s 17-year-old daughter discovered her mother when she came home from school.

    Neighbors said the girl noticed the door was hot and that there was smoke inside. The girl told neighbors that her mother and her mother’s boyfriend were trapped inside.

    No one else was injured and the fire was contained to one unit.
