NEW YORK (AP) - The NYPD has arrested a man in connection with the stabbing death of his 46-year-old wife and the wounding of their 14-year-old son inside their Brooklyn apartment.

Police say the 52-year-old Hasan Rugova was arrested on charges of murder, criminal possession of a weapon, assault and endangering the welfare of a child. It wasn’t clear if he had a lawyer.

Officers discovered the victims around 2:20 a.m. Tuesday after responding to a 911 call of an assault at 1010 Marine Ave.

Gyltene Rugova was found with a stab wound to the neck. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The teenager sustained a slash wound to the right forearm. The husband had a stab wound to the stomach.

Both were taken to a hospital in stable condition.

A butcher knife was recovered at the scene.
