September 20, 2018

A 26-year-old man walked into the New Haven Police Department lobby this morning and announced he killed his wife, authorities said.

Wiley Brown III is now in the Allen County Jail facing a murder charge.

New Haven police released few details about the alleged crime in the 1900 block of Medford Drive, near New Haven Avenue on the city’s west side.

After the man’s 2:30 a.m. arrival at the police station, officers visited his home and found someone who apparently suffered head trauma, police said.

The person, whose identity will be released by the coroner later, was pronounced dead at the scene.
