The Sangamon County Coroner has identified the victim of an apparent homicide in Waverly Tuesday night.
29-year-old Jessie Henson died of stab wounds and blunt force trauma. Her 33-year-old husband Nathan is in custody in the Morgan County Jail and is expected to face first-degree murder charges.
Nathan was caught a few blocks away from the couple’s home, involved in a fight with a man who authorities say was the victim’s brother. That man was also arrested but was later released and given a notice to appear in court.
