Sean Farrell, 24, was arrested on Thursday and charged with second degree murder, police said. 

Police were called to a home located at 5 Norway Pine Drive around 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 9 after Eric Connelly, 47, discovered his wife, Bonnie Farrell, 45, dead in their bedroom. 

Farrell had suffered a head injury and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. 

Sean Farrell was held overnight at the Fifth Precinct and is scheduled to be arraigned in First District Court in Central Islip on Friday.

hey Arch, you got it wrong - I merely say it's a "Risk" to have kids + I believe few people should be parents judging from the terrible stories we hear. I love/honor my parents + would kill to defend them - they were lucky with me - BUT my elder sibling brought them hell. See the Risk? The Bible warns us about this Fallen World - we are "to be wise as serpents + as gentle as doves". After all, it's not our True home down here; our home is Heaven. That's why the great sages + mystics never had kids or married. The truth is nobody knows what kind of soul is sent to them when they give birth or what's inside a spouse/friend/associate -good or evil? The Bible reminds us: "The heart is desperately wicked, who can know it?"

HEY CHRISTIE, I DIDN'T GET IT WRONG. YOU WERE FACED WITH A DIFFICULT EXPERIENCE WITHIN YOUR OWN FAMILY AND THEREFORE YOU SEEM UNABLE TO BE OBJECTIVE. I'LL STANDBY MY PREVIOUS COMMENT, THANKFULLY THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE DON'T SHARE YOUR DISTORTED VIEWS. IN THE FUTURE, YOU MIGHT TRY TO BE MORE-OPEN MINDED. LUCK IS NOT A FACTOR WHEN HAVING CHILDREN. MY WIFE AND I HAVE THREE GROWN SONS THAT WE GUIDED TO ADULTHOOD SUCCESSFULLY. THIS NOT ONLY TAKES LOVE BUT ALSO SUPERVISION. I'LL MAKE NO FURTHER OBSERVATIONS.

you don't read english Arch Stanton... I already said "FEW people should have kids" - you are one of the few - But no matter how wonderful your kids are, will they not suffer from having a body that's doomed to decay + death? Not to mention the endless disappointments from flawed human beings? Matter is separation from God. The Bible says: "Tobe absent from the body is to be with God". I base my views from studies of the Bible + Philosophy + having met + known enlightened masters...AND being cognizant of the world today + History. You must live in a small world if you don't pay attention to the evil that goes on. The great prophets all say "Everything that's of matter will suffer + die - but not Spirit". That's Eternal + forever. Tell me, is your body eternal? Contemplate what's Spiritual. Remember: If this fallen world was wonderful, Jesus would not have died on the cross.

HEY BILL, NOTHING NEW OUT OF THE ORDINARY WHEN IT COMES TO CHRISTIE. SHE STILL NEEDS PSYCHIATRIC HELP FOR HER MENTAL DISORDERS.
