This husband and wife had an argument and he allegedly shot her dead

The husband and his wife had a verbal dispute, during which he grabbed a gun from a closet and pointed it at his wife. She reportedly told Medina she was leaving him before the dispute moved downstairs.

There, Medina told police, Alfonso began punching him. He retrieved the gun from upstairs and again confronted his wife, prompting her to pick up a knife.

He told detectives that when he took the knife away, his wife began hitting him again, at which point he shot her several times.

He felt certain she was dead. He did not call 911, the affidavit states. He changed clothes, went to a police station and began the process of confessing.

When officers responded to the home, they found Alfonso dead from apparent gunshot wounds. They also found her 10-year-old daughter upstairs, physically unharmed. She was removed from the house covered in a blanket.
