A wife killed her husband with a coffee mug while he was lying in bed with him, according to police in New Jersey.

Union City police said that they have arrested 55-year-old Alina Lescaille after being accused of killing 63-year-old Bernardo Maurin.

Lescaille has been charged with manslaughter, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and unlawful possession of a weapon.

She was booked into the Hudson County jail, where she is being held without bail.

ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) placed a detainer on Lescaille as she was illegal in the United States.

According to the police investigation, Lescaille and Maurin were married and lived together in a home located at 4621 Broadway.

One day, police responded to the home on a call about a domestic violence incident.

Police found Lescaille and Maurin lying in the same bed.

Investigators learned that Lescaille had an argument with her husband before she picked up a coffee mug and smashed it Maurin’s head.

Maurin suffered lacerations on his head.

Maurin was taken to the Jersey City Medical Center, where he died three days later.
