Man arrested after wife's body found in lake

The husband of a missing North Carolina woman has been arrested in connection with her death. Robert Petrick was charged with murder just hours after his wife's body was pulled from a Durham County lake.

Police say the body of Janine Sutphen was found and put in a plastic bag and thrown into Falls Lake. Some fishermen discovered Sutphen's body Thursday. The 57-year old cellist disappeared from a Durham parking garage back in January.

Petrick was already in jail on a driver's license offense. His first court appearance is scheduled for next week.
