News outlets report that 45-year-old Armando Quispe Rodriguez, a Prince George’s County corrections officer, was Monday arrested on attempted murder and other charges.
Authorities say officers went to a home Friday after a reported stabbing and found Rodriguez with cuts, and his wife in the basement with multiple stab wounds.
