In Pennsylvania, a 36-year-old man admitted to axing his wife to death before taking the couple’s two children to his parent’s house and calling the police to confess his crime.
Dustin Lee Klopp admitted to killing wife Stephanie Kilhefner with an ax at their Paradise Township home in Pennsylvania at about 10 p.m. Wednesday, according to a statement from Pennsylvania State Police in Lancaster.
In an attempt to cover his crime, Klopp tried to clean up the blood and moved his wife’s body to a garden shed at the property.
Having called the police at around 5:20 p.m. on Christmas Day, Klopp reportedly turned himself in at around 6:30 p.m. The police stated that he gave a detailed account of the incident during questioning.
When a state trooper arrived at the property at 623 Georgetown Road, where the murder took place, they found Kilhefner’s body in a carrier bag in the shed.
