Wife killer surrenders himself to police

A 60-year-old man handed himself to police soon after stabbing his 55-year-old wife to death at home on Wednesday, Putuo District police said yesterday.

The man surnamed Chen killed his wife surnamed Xu in a dispute on Wednesday night, police said.

About 8:30pm, Chen approached security staff with blood on his clothes, calmly saying "I just killed my wife," according to a witness in the Mayday Residential Community on Sanyuan Road.

Chen waited outside the community gate to be taken away by police.

Xu's body was found in the kitchen of their apartment. The main cut was to her neck, a witness said.

People in the community said the couple did not get along well.

Chen would complain to his neighbors after an argument, said a security employee surnamed Wang.

"Chen had big temper," said a neighbor who asked not to be named.

Residential committee officials would also intervene to solve disputes, said a committee official surnamed Yang.

Chen was taken into custody while officers continue their investigation.

Chen and Xu had been previously married. Chen has two daughters and Xu has a son.
