Barton Williams, 49, was arrested accused of murdering his wife, Patricia Storey, 64. According to Mercury News: "[Police Sgt. Jason] Dwyer said it's not clear what led to the violence, but because the victim and suspect were married, investigators are looking into whether it was the result of a domestic dispute. He wasn't sure if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the killing."
