TACOMA, Wash. —

A Pierce County, Wash., sheriff's officer says a woman found dead in her home had been stabbed. Her estranged husband was hospitalized with apparently self-inflicted knife wounds, but is expected to survive.

Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer says coworkers called authorities, concerned that 50-year-old Carol Selland had not shown up for work Monday. Deputies saw two bodies lying on the floor, then the 47-year-old man opened his eyes. Troyer tells The News Tribune that although the man was seriously injured, deputies had to use a stun gun and bean bag gun to subdue him.

The man was reported in serious condition - and under guard - Monday night at Tacoma General Hospital.

The spokesman says deputies were called to the home last year on a domestic violence report. Troyer says Selland had a restraining order against her husband.
