A Long Island man charged with killing his ex-wife and setting their house on fire will be arraigned on a grand jury indictment Thursday.

Nearly two weeks ago, investigators found signs of a violent struggle after putting out a house fire in Lindenhurst.

No one was home.

Authorities in Babylon later found the lifeless body of a woman wrapped in a blanket in an SUV. She was reportedly stabbed to death.

Her husband, Muhammet Karadag, was found unconscious behind the wheel in what was apparently a botched suicide attempt.
