David Angle, 62, confessed to homicide detectives that he began arguing with his wife, Donna Angle, 57, about 3 a.m. Sunday over a drink of vodka.
“He told her he didn’t want any, but she continued to badger him about drinking with her,” detectives wrote in a criminal complaint. “He said all of their arguments revolved around alcohol and added that he has ‘anger issues.'” The suspect told police his wife tried to kick him during the argument, so he dragged her off a couch by grabbing both of her arms, then put his foot on her chest while continuing to pull her arms, the complaint said. Angle said he couldn’t remember how long he did that, but told police “it was not for minutes,” the detectives wrote. h/t 6abc
Angle said his wife went unconscious and he couldn’t revive her.
