Husband going through messy divorce kills mom of three, drives to police station and turns himself in: Cops

A Michigan man who reportedly shot and killed his wife on March 12 promptly drove to the police station after the incident and turned himself in.

FOX News reports that Shaun Wheeler, 39, walked into a Oakland County Sheriff’s Office and admitted that he shot and killed his 41-year-old wife, Cory Ehlers, inside their Rochester Hills residence off of Emmons Avenue.

“I just killed my wife,” the suspect reportedly told police.

As Wheeler was on his way to the police station, his brother-in-law,Larry Chalcraft, who apparently found the victim, contacted 911. Authorities drove the home and found Cory lying on a couch inside the home, covered in blood. Police indicated she died from a gunshot wound.

Chalcraft told local station FOX2 that the suspect had “big problems” but he refused to expand on the comment. However, the couple had apparently been going through a tumultuous divorce when the shooting occurred.

“A bit of a shock, not expected,” neighbor Randy Bur told FOX2.

It’s unclear where the couple’s two young children were when the shooting happened. Cory also had an older child from a previous relationship.

Wheeler remains behind bars, charged with murder. His next scheduled court date is later this month.

The story is still developing. Check back with CrimeOnline as additional details become available.
