Police arrested a man accused of stabbing his wife to death over the weekend.

Carlos Martinez, 41, was picked up late Monday night along Palo Alto Road by members of the U.S. Marshals' Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, San Antonio Police Department and the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Investigators say Martinez stabbed his wife in the neck during an argument at their apartment on Scarsdale, located near Thousand Oaks Boulevard, on Sunday morning.

There were two children in the apartment at the time of the woman's murder. They told officers they were upstairs when they heard the victim scream; they ran downstairs and found her bleeding from the neck.

Martinez will be charged with murder.
