Florida father kills wife and leaves the body for the children to find

one year ago

A Florida man has been arrested after he killed his wife and left their four children to discover her dead body when they woke up.

Hours after the Orange County Sheriff's office declared in a news conference that the tragic death of the 29-year-old wife Brooke Jenkins-Pugh was another instance of domestic violence, came the capture of Nelonza Pugh, the 29-year-old husband and father of four suspected of killing his wife in their Florida home.

The four children told authorities they heard a loud argument around 1 p.m. and when they woke up around 8 a.m. they discovered their mother's dead body. The kids ages reportedly range from 2 to 13-year-old.

Nelonza Pugh has previously been arrested for attempted second-dgree murder and cocaine trafficking.
