Man Tells DPS: "Arrest Me, I Just Killed my Wife"

Posted:

“Arrest me, I just killed my wife” -- that's what a man allegedly told a Department of Public Safety officer Tuesday night. The man apparently pulled over on the side of the freeway to confess.

According to Phoenix Police, a 7-year-old called 911 around dinnertime to report his parents were fighting and he heard three loud bangs.

By the time officers were sent to their Ahwatukee home, the man had turned himself in to a DPS officer on the side of the I-10 freeway.

At the home, officers found a 7-year-old and a 2-year-old home alone crying. They also found the body of a woman, apparently the children's mother, deceased in the home. She had gunshot wounds.

The property is blocked off and no names have been released.
