PICKENS, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies with the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office said a woman has been charged with murder after her husband was stabbed to death at their Pickens home.

Deputies said they were called to a home on Pickens Drive Wednesday night in reference to a domestic disturbance.

When deputies arrived, they found a 33-year-old male unconscious but alive in front of a neighboring home.

“The victim had a visible wound to the chest area that appeared to be a puncture wound,” Chief Deputy Creed Hashe said. “An investigation through the night conducted by sheriff’s detectives revealed that the victim had been stabbed by his wife inside their residence.”

Hashe said the victim called his mother and collapsed in front of a neighbor’s yard while trying to leave on foot.

The victim, later identified as Matthew Mickelboro, was pronounced dead at Greenville Memorial Hospital.

According to Pickens County coroner Kandy Kelly, Mickelboro died from a stab wound to the chest. His autopsy was completed on Thursday.

“Detectives recovered a knife believed to the murder weapon at the scene and further investigation revealed that the incident occurred in the presence of the couple’s three children,” Hashe said.

The children’s ages are 4, 7 and 8.

Samantha Pardew-Lingwai, 28, was arrested at the scene and charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

“The Department of Social Services is handling the supervision and safety of the children,” Hashe said.

Deputies said Pardew-Lingwai waved her right to a bond hearing on Thursday and will remain in the detention center. Her next court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 19.

The incident is being investigated by Pickens County Sheriff's Office.
