A U.S. man in suburban Cincinnati has been charged with murder after calmly calling 911 to confess he’d killed his wife and say that he wasn’t a threat and would be awaiting police on his front stoop.

He told the dispatcher: “I just shot and killed my wife.”

Police say the 57-year-old man surrendered to officers responding to the Colerain Township home after the call late Monday morning.

The caller said he shot his wife multiple times with a handgun.

Asked why, he said she had cleaned out their bank account Saturday, on his birthday, and was refusing to talk to him and referring him to her lawyer.

He told the dispatcher the shooting “just happened.”

The man was expected to be arraigned Tuesday in Hamilton County.
