HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) - A man who was shot by Florida police officers during a domestic disturbance is accused of first-degree murder and arson.

A Hollywood police report says 27-year-old Michael James told officers on Wednesday that he killed his wife for “not being loyal.”

The Miami Herald (https://hrld.us/1XdHZgW ) reports when officers asked James if anyone else was home, he respond, “no it was just me and my dead wife.”

The report says James was shot when he “aggressively began charging” officers.

James told police there wasn’t a gun and that he actually stabbed his wife. Police found smoke coming from the bedroom where the body of 27-year-old Latoya James was on a bed. She’d been stabbed in the neck, head and back.

James is recovering from multiple gunshot wounds in a hospital. It’s not known whether he has a lawyer.
