A man hospitalized in critical condition has been charged in the stabbing death of his estranged wife in a Collingswood, Camden County high rise.

Police have charged 41-year-old Timothy Moorman of Camden, New Jersey, with first-degree Murder.

Collingswood officers responded to the Heights of Collingswood Apartments, C Building, along the White Horse Pike and Collings Avenue around 7:49 p.m. Monday for the report of a domestic dispute.

Arriving officers were directed by family members, presumably three children who were in the apartment, to a bedroom where they located 36-year-old Joseline Perez.

She was suffering from multiple stab wounds and pronounced dead at the scene.

They also found her estranged husband Moorman with self-inflicted wounds.

Moorman was transported to Cooper University Hospital in Camden in critical condition.

Police say the couple had recently moved into the high-rise.

A law enforcement official tells Action News while the children were in the apartment, they were not in the bedroom where the stabbing happened and didn't witness it.

They are now in the care of family members.

Bail for Moorman has not been set.
