The man who allegedly killed his wife and left her body drowning in a pool of blood over night before their four children discovered her in the morning is charged.

Sheriff John Mina announced that the 29-year-old father, Nelonza Pugh, was accused of the death of his 29-year-old wife Brooke Jenkins-Pugh. He is now in custody and charged of first-degree murder.

The four children called 911 reporting they had awoken early morning to discover their mother dead. She was lying in a pool of blood with bullets around her.

The surveillance footage showed the violence of Nelonza toward his wife: he can be seen pinning her against a wall with his left hand while raising a handgun to her head with the other hand firing once, walking past her and firing two more shots.
