Man calls 911 saying he just killed his wife after 'she pushed him too far'


ONALASKA, Wash. -- A man has been arrested for allegedly killing his wife in their Onalaska home Tuesday evening, according to Chief Bruce Kimsey with the Lewis County Sheriff's Office.

It was around 9:20 p.m. when the man called 911 saying he had just shot his wife. Deputies arrived to find a 67-year-old woman's body outside.

The 67-year-old man told deputies he was in a fight with his wife over money and remodeling their home when she "pushed him too far," according to Kimsey.

The man grabbed a gun and shot his wife several times, Kimsey said. He's since been booked into the Lewis County Jail with his first court appearance scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.

The victim's name has not been released.
