MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) A Madison County man was stabbed to death early Saturday morning and his wife is charged with his murder.

Madison County Sheriff's deputies responded to this house off Ready Section Road in Hazel Green around 2 a.m. Investigators say they discovered Jonathan Elliff with a serious stab wound to his lower right chest.

His 30-year-old wife Karla Ellif was originally charged with first degree assault, but her charges were later upgraded to murder when her husband died at Huntsville Hospital.

Neighbors were surprised to hear the news.

"We didn't know anything was going on until we saw the investigators were showing up and then we found out what happened. We all slept right through it. We didn't hear a thing," said neighbor Mark Cothren.

Investigators say the fatal stabbing happened after a domestic dispute between the couple .
