PHOENIX -- A 58-year-old man has been charged with murder after police say he stabbed his wife to death then drove to Phoenix police headquarters and confessed.

According to police, Dwight Wesley, walked into the station late last night and admitted stabbing his 46-year-old wife, Delores Glover, to death.

According to police, Wesley and his wife allegedly got into an argument while she was driving him to work Wednesday night. Officers believe Wesley stabbed her while she was driving.

He then got behind the wheel and drove, with his wife's body in the car, to police headquarters at Sixth and Washington streets. He walked into the building, leaving a trail of blood behind him, and turned himself in, police said.

Officers on duty said Wesley had blood on his shirt. They thought he was a victim who had come to report a crime. They said that's when he confessed to murdering his wife and gave them a knife.

Investigators went outside and found Glover's body in the car parked on Sixth Avenue, right next to police headquarters. Glover had been stabbed several times. Paramedics were called out, but they were unable to save her.

According to Sgt. Tommy Thompson of the Phoenix Police Department, it was while driving Wesley to work that Glover told her husband she wanted a divorce. That's when Wesley became upset and allegedly pulled a knife and stabbed her.

Investigators tried to questioned Wesley, but they say after his first alleged confession, he stopped talking.

Wesley has been booked into the Maricopa County Jail. He has been charged with murder.
