An Arkansas man has admitted to killing his wife because of a dispute over their television. According to People, 58-year-old Tony Thomas of Carlisle, Arkansas murdered his wife, Elke, because she changed the channel when he was watching football.
The incident took place on November 19, 2017.
Thomas says that he went outside for a smoke and when he came back, his show was no longer on. He says that he asked her the score of the game and a fight ensued. “She began yelling at him and got in his face,” the criminal complaint alleges. “He stated he got a knife from the wall and stabbed her.

The incident took place in the couple’s living room.
Once he killed her, Thomas took the body outside and he covered it with a blanket and tarp.
