A Muhlenberg Township police officer is accused of stalking his estranged wife and making terroristic threats.

Authorities say Thenard Anthony Caraballo put a gun in his estranged wife's mouth and threatened to kill her in June of last year while the couple's young daughter was nearby.

They also say he harassed his estranged wife through a series of phone calls and text messages over the course of several months.

Muhlenberg police said Caraballo's been suspended with pay while the matter is investigated.
