A 51-year-old man was charged Thursday with the fatal stabbing of his 52-year-old girlfriend in Gloucester City, Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo said.

John Divetro, of Gloucester City, was charged with first-degree murder and related offenses in Wednesday’s slaying of Christine Madiraca, Colalillo and Gloucester City Police Chief Brian Morrell said in a joint statement.

Police called to conduct a wellness check just after 10:10 a.m. Wednesday at Madiraca’s residence in the 900 block of Bobwood Avenue found her on the floor and Divetro on a bed. Both appeared to have stab wounds. Madiraca was pronounced dead at the scene and Divetro was taken to a nearby hospital where he was still being treated on Thursday. When he’s released from the hospital he will be taken to the Camden County Correctional Facility.
