DAYTON, Ohio (WKRC) - An 81-year-old Dayton man surrendered to authorities after his wife was fatally stabbed.

Donald Cleaver told police he argued with his wife Thursday night and after she went to bed, he stabbed her.

Afterwards a neighbor called 911, saying Cleaver approached him and told him what he'd done.

"I was coming outside to smoke a cigarette on my front porch. I went back inside to get my phone because I was going to be on Facebook... he [Cleaver] said, 'Steve I just killed my wife. I'm going to the police station.'"

Officers found the woman dead inside the couple's home.

Cleaver is in jail charged with murder.
