NEW YORK -- The wife of New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has filed divorce papers, a day after prosecutors charged a woman with stalking him and extorting money over an extramarital affair.


Mary Cashman filed the paperwork Friday in Stamford, Conn.

Her lawyer didn't immediately return a phone message Saturday. A spokesman for Brian Cashman says the family wouldn't have any comment.

On Thursday, 36-year-old Louise Neathway was charged with harassing Cashman and threatening to harm his reputation if he didn't give her thousands of dollars.

Neathway's lawyers deny it and say Cashman turned on her when their relationship ended badly.

A person familiar with the family says Cashman and his wife have been separated and living apart for a year. The person asked not to be named because of the private nature of the matter.
