Wichita, KS: Husband arrested in wife's death

WICHITA, Kansas -- A 61-year-old woman is dead, and her husband is under arrest for allegedly killing her.
Homicide detectives discovered Debra K. Palmer in her home in the 6800 block of East Farmview shortly before 8 a.m. Sunday morning.
Officers went to check on her welfare after receiving a call.

They found Palmer with multiple stab wounds in her basement.
"It appears possibly the marriage may have been coming to an end which may have been a motive for the homicide," said Detective Randy Reynolds, Wichita Police Department.

Wichita police say Palmer's husband turned himself in and was booked on charges of first degree murder.

The case will now be turned over to the district attorney.

The homicide is the 25th in Wichita this year, and it is the fifth homicide involving domestic abuse.
