    January 26, 2019

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Scottsdale police say a 72-year-old man is accused of killing his wife by beating her with a hammer.

    Sgt. Ben Hoster said Saturday that Jozef Miller was arrested after officers responding to a 911 call found 73-year-old Hanna Miller dead in their kitchen Friday evening.

    According to Hoster, the 911 caller said “he had killed his wife” and Miller later “admitted to the killing to investigators” and that the couple had a history of domestic violence.

    Hoster also provided timeline information indicating that the 911 call was made about three hours before the killing occurred.

    Online court records don’t list an attorney for Miler who could comment on the allegations.
