MIAMI — A South Florida man walked into a police station and confessed to killing his wife at the home where she worked as a housekeeper, officials said.
Luis Manuel Romero-Moran, 46, told Miami-Dade police officers that he strangled his wife at a home in Doral on Monday morning, an arrest report said.
“I killed my wife and I’m here to turn myself in,” Romero-Moran said when he walked into the police station, the report said.
He was charged late Monday with first-degree murder in the death of his wife, Zoranllilis Cadena Cambar, 41.
Investigators said the man’s wife had been walking a dog and he followed her back to a home in Doral where she worked.
Someone arriving at the home around 9 a.m. found the woman’s body in the backyard and called Doral police. Investigators said she had a zip tie around her neck.
According to an arrest report, Romero-Moran called his family and told them what he had done before walking into the police station, which is also located in Doral.
He told investigators he’d had a dispute with his wife on Sunday and “that is when he knew he was going to kill the victim,” the report said.
An attorney who could speak on Romero-Moran’s behalf was not listed on jail records.
