DELRAN, N.J. (AP) - A man who slit his wife’s throat while she was driving last year, causing a crash, is now headed to state prison.

Burlington County prosecutors say Quentin Fortune recently received a 27-year sentence. The 38-year-old Somerdale man had pleaded guilty in June to an aggravated manslaughter charge stemming from the March 2016 incident in Delran.

Authorities say officers responding to the crash scene found 54-year-old Cynthia Fortune on the ground with lacerations on her neck. The knife used to inflict her injuries was discovered in the vehicle.

Quentin Fortune was soon found at a nearby diner. He was dressed only in a T-shirt, boxer-briefs and sneakers and covered in what appeared to be blood.

Authorities have not said what prompted the stabbing.
