PHOENIX - A man who stabbed his wife to death and drove her body to Phoenix police headquarters was sentenced today in court.

Dwight Wesley, 58, was sentenced to 22 years in prison.

According to police, Wesley, walked into the police station late the evening of April 28, 2010 and admitted stabbing his 46-year-old wife, Delores Glover, to death.

Police said Wesley and his wife allegedly got into an argument while she was driving him to work after Glover told her husband she wanted a divorce.

Wesley stabbed her while she was driving and then got behind the wheel and drove, with his wife's body in the car, to police headquarters at Sixth and Washington streets.

Officers on duty that evening 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.
