Bernard Madoff's wife has visited him in the Manhattan jail where he has been held since pleading guilty to orchestrating perhaps the biggest Ponzi scheme in history. Ruth Madoff arrived around 4:40 p.m. Monday for her first visit to the Manhattan Correctional Center, news reports said on Tuesday. She said nothing to reporters before or after her roughly 90-minute stay. Ruth Madoff has not been charged, but prosecutors want to seize the couple's assets, valued at $826 million at the end of last year. Defense attorneys have indicated they may argue for Ruth Madoff to keep the pair's $7 million Manhattan apartment and about $62 million in securities.
