CLEVELAND (AP) - A judge has set a $1 million bond for a man who authorities say walked into a Cleveland police district station last week and confessed to fatally stabbing his wife during an argument.

Fifty-year-old Henry C. Ashley Jr. of Cleveland appeared Monday in municipal court after being charged by Cleveland city prosecutors with aggravated murder in the slaying of 50-year-old Francis Davis-Ashley.

Cleveland police have said homicide detectives found the body of Francis Davis-Ashley in the couple’s home after Henry Ashley told officers Friday morning that he’d killed her. Police haven’t released details about the confession or what the couple had argued about.

No attorney information was available for Henry Ashley. County prosecutors will present the case to a Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County grand jury.
