ANDERSON, Ind. (TCD) -- A 61-year-old man allegedly called police and admitted to fatally stabbing his 51-year-old wife earlier this week.
According to WRTV-TV, on Tuesday, Dec. 6, Anderson Police officers responded to the Williams home on 11th Street and found the victim deceased in the living room with a laceration wound.
Curtis Williams reportedly told dispatchers, "It was unacceptable," adding, "I accepted nothing less than death."
During the fatal attack against Claudette Williams, Curtis Williams allegedly suffered a non-life-threatening laceration believed to have been self-inflicted. Curtis was transported to a hospital for treatment, and the cut on his body was deep enough that it exposed his tendons, muscle, and bone, WRTV reports.
Curtis’ wife allegedly attacked her husband when he went after the other man. Curtis reportedly said, "I killed her," and "it was unacceptable."
Police asked Curtis how many times he stabbed his wife, and according to WRTV, he said "I don’t know man, I lost my mind, man. ... It just happened, man. I lost my mind, man. ... I have destroyed my life."
The knife believed to have been used in the attack was reportedly recovered from the home with droplets of blood.
The affidavit obtained by WRTV reads, "The cutting edge of the knife was facing upward toward Claudette’s head (as) if she were in a standing position. This is not a natural position to hold a knife, especially if used to slash or cut as described by Curtis."
Authorities reportedly believe the victim was standing in the kitchen when she was fatally stabbed.
Curtis Williams was booked into the Madison County Jail for murder, records show. He remains held without bond
