Grand Junction police say a 24-year-old man killed his wife by stabbing her several times in the neck in front of their 2-year-old daughter.
Police say Octavio Vargas-Herrera told detectives he killed his wife Sunday evening after she told him she didn't love him anymore.
Police say Vargas-Herrera's brother, Luis Vargas, found the body of 23-year-old Jeana Ann Vargas at her home. Grand Junction Police say Luis said his brother admitted to killing his wife and was suicidal. Vargas-Herrera later surrendered to police.
He faces a first-degree murder charge.
