The man apparently stopped an officer and told him he had just killed his wife and that he wanted the officer to kill him. He had a baby girl at his feet while he came upon the officer.

“That man was extremely agitated, was telling the officer that he had killed his wife and he was asking the officer to take his life,” Sgt. Daron Wyatt said.

During the ordeal, Wyatt, who was at the scene, managed to grab the baby girl while he determined it was safe to do so.

Police later responded to an apartment complex in the 100 block of Wilken Way, a couple of miles from the scene, where the man said he had killed his wife and found a woman’s body.

The apartment is near Ponderosa Elementary School.

The man was taken into custody. Neither the victim or the suspect have been identified.

The baby is believed to be a year old and police are working to determine the relationship between everyone involved.
