NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – The wife of 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, prosecutors said 36-year-old Louise Neathway stalked and shook down Brian Cashman, getting him to pay her $6,000 and demanding more by threatening to harm his reputation.

Her lawyers said Cashman had had “an inappropriate relationship” with Neathway, a medical sales worker and single mother of a 14-year-old daughter, and he turned on her when it 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.

Neathway was arraigned on grand larceny, stalking and harassment charges and is being held on $300,000 bond. Her next court date is Tuesday.
