SPANISH FORK, Utah (AP) - A Utah man is under arrest in what police are calling the strangulation death of his wife.

The Daily Herald newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/2xrd9Z4) authorities found indications 35-year-old Curtis Nichols ate a meal from McDonalds in the kitchen where his wife’s body was found.

Police say he told investigators that he found Robin Nichols dead after returning from Wal-Mart with the fast food Thursday night.

But officers say the time-stamp on his receipt didn’t match the story he told, and they also found scratches on his head that he’d tried to hide with a hat.

He was arrested Saturday, after an autopsy showed she died of strangulation. The couple lived with their three children.

No lawyer was immediately listed for Nichols in court records.
