Man Arrested After Turning Himself In For Killing Wife, St. Paul Police Say

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- St. Paul police say they arrested a man Tuesday after he called 911 to report he'd killed his wife.

The 46-year-old turned himself in at the Ramsey County Law Enforcement Center and was booked into jail on suspicion of homicide.

He allegedly called authorities just after 3 a.m., saying he had shot his wife at their home on the 30 block of Winnipeg Avenue West.

Officers found his wife, a woman in her 40s, dead in their home.

Investigators have not yet determined a motive.

Police said this is the city's 30th homicide of the year.

WCCO-TV does not typically name people arrested until they are formally charged with a crime.

Anyone experiencing domestic violence is encouraged to call 911 or The National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233. Violence Free Minnesota also has resources. You can find St. Paul's Blueprint for Safety by clicking here.
