    Investigators say a skydiver has been killed after plunging to the ground when one of his parachutes failed to open during a Houston-area jump.

    A 31-year-old woman has been accused of stabbing her husband to death at their Brooklyn apartment Wednesday morning, police say.

    Timothy Turner, 39, was found at about 4:45 a.m. at the apartment, on Kingsborough 1st Walk in Weeksville with stab wounds to his chest and arm, according to the NYPD.

    Turner was taken to the Kings County Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    Lakwisha Blaides, Turner’s wife, was charged with manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon in the stabbing.

    It’s not known if Blaides has an attorney.
