DURHAM, N.C. -- Authorities say a former Durham police officer has been charged in the stabbing death of his wife.           

Police said officers found 50-year-old Maxine Burns dead inside her Durham home Friday. Investigators say her husband, 51-year-old Timothy Burns was also taken to the hospital.         

Authorities say they found enough evidence to charge Timothy Burns with murder Saturday. He remained in the hospital and details about his condition were not released. It wasn't known if he had a lawyer.          

Investigators didn't give a motive for the stabbing.         

Durham Police say Burns worked for the force in the 1990s.
