CANTON, Ohio (AP) - Authorities in northeast Ohio say they’ve filed a murder charge against a man who they say walked into the Canton police department and confessed he shot his wife.

Police found a woman in bed with a gunshot wound to the head over the weekend.

Authorities filed a murder charge against the 37-year-old Canton man on Tuesday.

Police say he reported the shooting Saturday morning. Emergency responders took the woman from her home to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead that evening.

The Repository newspaper in Canton reports the man had been on parole in a domestic violence case after being released from prison last July.
