HILLSBORO, Mo. (KMOX) - An Imperial man is charged with second-degree murder for the killing of his estranged wife.

Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies say they found the body of 38-year-old Deborah McDonough of St. Louis inside a bedroom, Friday night, after her mother had asked neighbors to check on her well-being.

Investigators found 54-year-old Matthew McDonough in the basement of the home with what appeared to be self-inflicted cuts on his body.

The couple’s children (ages 9 and 13) were removed safely from the home by neighbors.

Deputies say Matthew McDonough is now jailed on $500,000 bond.
