A northwest suburban man with a history of domestic violence arrests has been charged with murdering his wife, who died Monday after a beating on Friday, according to police.

Edward E. Hartgraves, 64, of Huntley is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of 63-year-old Carol S. Hartgraves, according to a statement from Huntley police.

About 5:20 p.m. Friday, police responded to a 911 call in the 10500 block of Longfield Drive.

The caller, later identified as Edward Hartgraves, and his wife were found at the home, police said. The woman was spoken to briefly but did not provide a detailed account of what happened.

Disoriented, she was taken to Centegra Hospital in Woodstock, where was diagnosed with a broken arm and received six stitches to her chin, police said. Her husband was arrested for domestic battery.

He was initially charged with two counts of aggravated domestic battery, two counts of domestic battery and one count of violation of an order of protection, police said. He posted bond and was released from the McHenry County Jail.

But Carol Hartgraves died Monday while still undergoing treatment at Centegra, police said.

The charge against Hartgraves was upgraded to murder, and he was taken back into custody. He is being held on a $5 million bond.

The couple has a history of domestic violence, police said. Theymoved to the 10500 block of Longfield Drive in Huntley in January from Schaumburg.

On the evening of Feb. 2, police responded to a report that Hartgraves was threatening his wife, and he was arrested for violating an active order of protection.

He was also arrested for domestic battery in November 2014 in Schaumburg, police said.
