BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Police say a Bellevue, Wash., man in his 70s walked into a police station Friday and told officers he killed his wife two days earlier.
Police who went to the couple's home found a woman dead.
Spokeswoman Carla Iafrate says the man was arrested for investigation of murder. Neither he nor the woman was immediately identified, although the spokeswoman said both were born in 1940.
Iafrate declined to discuss how the woman was killed and said there is no apparent motive yet.
Police were at the home late Friday, executing search warrants and looking for evidence.
According to neighbors, the couple had a dispute two years ago that resulted in the wife filing a restraining order, however it was resolved. At the time, she reportedly told neighbors to call 911 if they saw her husband come within 100 feet of the home.
The suspect was scheduled to make his first court appearance Saturday afternoon.
