A 44-year-old West Haven man who has been charged with the murder of his wife has been placed on suicide watch. 

Police arrested Carlos Pinedo after a 911 call prompted them to respond to a condo at 1014 Campbell Ave. on Saturday following a domestic dispute.

Police said Carlos Pinedo and his 38-year-old wife, Catherine Pinedo, had been in some sort of argument before she died. What sparked the dispute is yet unknown and it’s still unclear how the 38-year-old was killed.

Police said Carlos Pinedo remained at the scene and was cooperative.

Catherine Pinedo’s family is now grieving her loss and a family friend said her family is also concerned about the two young son and daughter she left behind.

According to state records, she was registered nurse.

Carlos Pinedo is being held on $2 million bond and is expected to appear in court on Monday.

The case has been continued to April 18.
