Suspects In Stabbing Turn Themselves In

Two suspects wanted for a weekend stabbing death in Escatawpa surrendered to authorities on Friday.

Donald Hughes and Marla Kunkel turned themselves in at the George County Sheriff's office. They're being questioned about the Sunday night murder of a Pascagoula man. The victim, Clarence Kunkel, 41, was stabbed to death at a home on Tammy Lane in Escatawpa.

One suspect, Marla Kunkel, is the victim's wife. The killing sparked a nationwide search for the pair.

Hughes and Kunkel are being held without bond pending an initial court appearance on Monday.
