Anne Arundel County police are investigating the domestic slaying of a woman at a Pasadena home Wednesday morning, police said.

Police said they arrived at a home in the 7700 block of Jones Drive around 5 a.m. and found 38-year-old Jill Ann Salb suffering from cuts to her upper body. She was later pronounced dead at the Baltimore Washington Medical Center.

Police said the victim's daughter was also cut, and was being treated at the same hospital.

Charges have been filed against the victim's husband, Stephen Richard Salb, 56, who was taken into custody at the house, police said.

Salb is being charged with first- and second-degree murder and first- and second-degree assault. Salb is awaiting an initial appearance with the court commissioner, police said in a statement Wednesday afternoon.

"Apparently the guy just started assaulting his wife," said Justin Mulcahy, a department spokesman.

Police said they believe that the woman's daughter intervened during the assault. Police are trying to determine what led to the incident, Mulcahy said.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Detective Norval Cooper of the Homicide Unit at 410-222-3453.

The killing is the fifth homicide in Anne Arundel County in 2011. There were 14 homicides in the county in 2010.
