Man held on $3 million bond after wife's death

WHEATON (AP) – A suburban Chicago man is being held on $3 million bond after authorities say he killed his wife and stabbed his teenage stepson.

Kurtis Worley of Addison appeared Monday in DuPage County court, where he’s charged with first-degree murder and aggravated domestic battery.

Assistant State’s Attorney Anne Therieau says Worley stabbed his wife, 39-year-old Martha Worley, in the head as many as 10 times and slashed the 15-year-old in the throat.

The 33-year-old also cut his own throat and wrists. He stared at the ground when he appeared in court Monday and said little during the proceedings.

Investigators say Worley attacked his wife of 11 years because he was upset she wanted a divorce.

The teenager needed surgery.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Worley had an attorney.
