A Florida man is accused of stalking his wife while she was working and then strangling her to death, police said.

On Dec. 27 shortly before 9 a.m., police responding to reports of an unresponsive woman at a Doral home found the body of 41-year-old Zoranllilis Cadena Cambar, who had a job as a housekeeper at the residence, the Miami Herald reported.

That evening, the murder victim’s husband, Luis Romero-Moran, 46, showed up at the Miami-Dade Midwest District station. “I killed my wife and I’m here to turn myself in,” he allegedly told officers, according to an arrest report obtained by the Miami Herald.

The victim had been walking a dog and was returning to her employer's home when her husband followed her, police said.

“He walked into the residence where she works with the intent of killing her with a zip tie and strangled her with it,” the report claims.

Investigators with Miami-Dade police said Romero-Moran then fled the scene. The victim’s body was found with a plastic cable tie around her neck in the home’s backyard, the arrest report states.

Before turning himself in, the murder suspect phoned his family and allegedly confessed that he murdered his wife, police said.

A day prior to the slaying, the arrest report states, Romero-Moran allegedly said he got into a “verbal dispute” with Cambar and “that is when he knew he was going to kill the victim.”

Romero-Moran was being held at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami. He faces a first-degree murder charge and is being held without bond.
