DALLAS (AP) - Dallas police are reviewing how two officers handled a domestic disturbance call when a man days later was charged with killing his wife.

Jonathan Edelen was being held Friday on a murder charge in the slaying of Ceaira Ford.

Two officers responded Monday after a neighbor heard shouting and called 911. A man who answered the door at the couple’s apartment said he was alone and denied any disturbance. Officers found no sign of trouble.

Police later determined they spoke to the suspect’s friend and that Edelen was with his dead wife elsewhere in the home.

An affidavit says police were summoned Wednesday as Edelen surrendered, telling officers he suffocated his wife with a pillow.

Bond is $500,000. An attorney for Edelen couldn’t immediately be located for comment Friday.
