Bellevue man tells police he killed wife

Bellevue police learned of a homicide on Friday when a man in his 70s walked into police headquarters and said he had killed his wife.

“He said he killed his wife two days ago. He came and turned himself in. Detectives confirmed that and so they’ve been investigating it since this afternoon,” police spokeswoman Carla Iafrate said.

The man reported the killing around 3 p.m., and police found the body of a woman in the home in the 100 block of 159th Avenue Southeast. The husband and wife were both born in 1940.

Iafrate declined to say how the woman was killed. She said the man would be booked into a King County jail.
