A WOMAN’S decomposing body was found weeks after her husband allegedly stabbed her to death and washed her corpse to hide the smell.
The victim was identified on May 20 as 50-year-old Jamie Ward.
Ward had been dead for about two weeks when cops made the discovery in Greenfield, Wisconsin on May 18.
Her badly decomposed body was found in a bedroom after a family member called police for a welfare check, according to WISN.
Dental records were used to confirm her identity.
Ward’s death has been ruled a homicide, and cops say it was a domestic violence case.

“They blocked off Highway 100 and me and the kids were in the back and SWAT was walking through our yards and we came out and there was a man in a silver car and he was putting his hands up and crawling down on the ground.”
