TOWN OF VIENNA, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say a 52-year-old man from Russia who worked at a south-central Wisconsin dairy farm was stabbed to death by his wife after they drank and argued over finances.

Dane County sheriff’s deputies had found the man dead Saturday evening at a home in the Town of Vienna, just north of Madison. He was identified by authorities Monday as Vladimir Yrvech Shevchuk.

Dane County Sheriff David Mahoney said at a news conference Monday that Shevchuk’s 54-year-old wife, who’s also a Russian immigrant, is being preliminarily charged with first-degree intentional homicide. Mahoney says she’s expected to appear in court this week.

Blue Star Dairy says Shevchuk had worked at the farm in Vienna since 2002 and rented a home there.
