Missouri Man Tells Floydada Police Chief That He Just Murdered His Wife
Floydada Police Chief Reuben Ramon was flagged down by a man from Missouri who said he just murdered his wife on Wednesday, September 7th.
KAMC News reports that 48-year-old Keith Bass was already wanted for murder out of Excelsior Springs, Missouri. The incident apparently happened just after midnight that same morning.
Excelsior Springs Police responded after a reported shooting and located a man and woman suffering from gunshot wounds. Both were taken to the hospital, and the woman was later pronounced dead.
Bass later told police that he had caught his wife in bed with another man, leading to the shooting. He was apparently on his way to a friend's house in Lubbock when he was stopped by Ramon along Highway 62.
Bass was transported to the Hale County Jail for first-degree murder.
