POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) - Police have arrested a New York county corrections officer in connection with the stabbing death of his ex-wife.

The Poughkeepsie Journal reports 32-year-old Timothy Alexander, of Poughkeepsie, was charged with second-degree murder in the death of 34-year-old Terrie DeGelormo.

State police responded to a home in Wappinger around 11 p.m. Thursday and found DeGelormo. Police say they rendered first aid, but DeGelormo was pronounced dead at the scene.

Alexander previously served as president of the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Employee Association, and he’s currently a sergeant in the county corrections division.

Court records show Alexander and DeGelormo separated in 2016 and divorced in 2017.

Alexander is being held in jail in neighboring Putnam County without bail. The district attorney’s office didn’t know if he has a lawyer.

The sheriff union’s president has declined to comment.
