    The man prosecutors say killed his estranged wife the day she filed for divorce will head to the witness stand for a second day of testimony.

    Forty-five-year-old James Robarge testified Thursday that he did not threaten or kill 42-year-old Kelly Robarge, but he acknowledged he didn't want to lose his house or his family.

    Robarge is charged with first-degree murder and an alternative count of second-degree murder in the death of his wife, who disappeared June 27, 2013 after she returned home from court.

    Robarge said he went to the Charlestown, New Hampshire, home they once shared that afternoon and found his 18-month-old grandson crying on the sofa, two dogs fighting in the kitchen and no sign of Kelly. Her decomposed body was found 10 days later in the woods in Unity.
