Clovis Woman Stabbed to Death

5/3/2008 Clovis, CA Clovis police say Cantrell Ellis broke into his wife's home and stabbed Charlotte Ellis to death early Friday morning.

She had moved out two weeks ago because she was divorcing him.

Coroners say she had wounds to her heart, a lung, and her liver as well as defensive wounds to her hands and legs. That means she tried to protect herself.

The couple's two children were at home at the time.

Cantrell Ellis is charged with murder and attempted murder, but police aren't saying who he's charged with attempting to murder.
