Christopher Murray, 48, failed a lie detector test and then
admitted to killing his wife, Police Lieutenant Philip Riehl told a
Murray told investigators that he and his wife, Constance Murray,
46, had argued on the evening of Aug. 4 and she left for a walk or
jog in a park near their home.
Murray followed his wife in his car. The pair argued on a park
bench, where Murray strangled her, police said.
"She went up there voluntarily to talk to him about whatever was
going on and things went bad," Riehl said.
Her body was found early the next morning, police said.
Police said they did not believe Murray set out in his car with the
intention of killing his wife. Surveillance video from the area
showed his vehicle in the area.
