ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - Roswell police say a 78-year-old man was arrested in his wife’s death after he went to a fire station to report that she had been killed.

Police say Ignacio Aguirre (ah-GEER’-ee) went to the fire station late Monday night. An officer then took him on to the police department to be interviewed by a detective while other investigators went to the couple’s home.

They found 70-year-old Delores Aguirre on the living room floor, dead from multiple stab wounds.

Police say the husband was arrested and jailed early Tuesday on suspicion of murder.

A police spokesman said he didn’t know whether Aguirre yet has an attorney who could comment on allegations against Aguirre.
