A drunken argument between a man and his wife turned when she taunted him saying he wasn’t going to stab her. Then, he did just that. Over and over.
The suspect then told others on Facebook about his crime and he planned to turn himself in when police arrived.
Now, he will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
Recently, a judge in Colorado sentenced William Weaver to life in prison for the June 2020 murder of his wife, Wendy Cupit, according to Fox21.
On June 19, 2020, Culpit’s body was found in a home in Manitou Springs, Colorado.
Weaver told the responding officers, “I’m going to confess,” as he smelled of alcohol, according to Fox 21.
Weaver told police that Culpit had laughed in his face during a drunken argument, according to KKTV. That prompted him to strike her and the two got into a fight. There was no word on what led to the disagreement.
Weaver admitted to police it got “pretty ugly then.”
The suspect said he slapped Culpit a few times, then tried to choke her to death, according to KKTV. But he was drunk, so it wasn’t effective.
Weaver went to a kitchen drawer where he got a knife, according to the report. The two then met in the dining room.

“She taunted him that he wasn't going to stab her,” a police report obtained by KKTV read. “Weaver described slashing [the victim] across the forearms."
Weaver then stabbed his wife several times, eventually killing her, according to the report.
"In a fit of rage I murdered my wife ... I didn't mean to," the affidavit reported that Weaver said. He added that he was tired of her ridiculing him.
Weaver then went to Facebook and told others about his crime and that he planned to confess. That led people to call police, according to KKTV.
Police said there was previous domestic incidents at the home.
After Weaver’s arrest, Culpit’s family released a statement to KKTV.
"The family of Wendy Cupit is grieving deeply over the loss of our loved one. We have lost her tragically to a brutal crime of domestic violence,” the statement read. “We would like the public to know how much we appreciate the extraordinary showing of support we have received as a result of losing her this tragic way. We are grateful for the thoughts and prayer we have received.”
