Danville, PA: Pa. man charged in girlfriend's stabbing death

Authorities in central Pennsylvania have charged a man with stabbing his girlfriend to death in their house while their 2-year-old daughter was in the home.

Thirty-three-year-old Westley Wise was charged with criminal homicide in Monday night's death of 26-year-old Jessica Frederick in Danville. Her body was found Tuesday morning by the suspect's father when he arrived to pick her up.

The (Sunbury) Daily Item says arrest documents filed by police indicate that county coroner Scott Lynn reported seeing blood spatter on the suspect's clothes and body.

Wise was taken to Montour County Prison without bail pending a Feb. 2 preliminary hearing; it was unclear whether he had an attorney.

Officials said the child appeared uninjured but was taken to Geisinger Medical Center as a precaution.
