    A 75-year-old Massachusetts man was held without bail Monday in the death of his wife.

    Prosecutors say Jonathan Kastberg, of Holland, was arraigned in Palmer District Court on a murder charge and a violation of an abuse prevention order.

    The Hampden district attorney says police responded to his Brimfield Road home at about 5:45 p.m. Friday after getting a 911 call about a possible homicide.

    There, officers found the body of 60-year-old Janet Kastberg. She was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency medical personnel.
