SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Nebraska man has been charged with strangling his estranged wife in Sioux City.

Sioux City officers who were sent to an Iowa Street address around 12:40 a.m. Sunday found the woman and her husband. She was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead there.

Police say 27-year-old Rogelio Pablo-Morales is charged with second-degree murder in the slaying of 21-year-old Margarita Morales and is being held in the Woodbury County Jail. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could be contacted to comment on Pablo-Morales’ behalf.

Relatives of Pablo-Morales live at the address, and they’d called police.

Pablo-Morales was charged earlier this month in Dakota County, Nebraska, with beating his wife at the home they’d shared in Emerson. She reported that he punched and choked her.
