LODI, N.J. - Police say a New Jersey man fatally stabbed his estranged wife, then fled to South Carolina with the couple's two sons.
The Bergen County Prosecutor's office says a concerned family member called police to request a welfare check on 39-year-old Tracy Jordan. Responding police found Jordan dead of multiple stab wounds at her Lodi home Friday night.
Prosecutors say police then learned that Jordan's estranged husband, 47-year-old John Robert Jordan, had taken their young sons out of school.
Authorities say Jordan was arrested early Saturday after arriving at a relative's home in Greenville, South Carolina, in Tracy Jordan's car. The couple's 7- and 8-year-old sons were found unharmed. An Amber Alert that had been issued for the boys was canceled early this morning.
John Jordan has been charged with murder and possessing a weapon for an unlawful purpose. He remains in custody in South Carolina.
