A 58-year-old man on parole who reportedly admitted to stabbing his wife to death shocked her family on Tuesday when he was overheard saying: ‘At least now I don’t have to worry about another man f***ing my wife.’
Prosecutors in Bronx Criminal Court repeated the statement in public on Tuesday during Virgil Solis’ arraignment.
Solis is reported to have made the remark after his arrest Monday morning as police led him to central booking, according to the New York Daily News.
He allegedly disemboweled Valerie Solis, 53, in her seventh-floor Bronx apartment on Monday morning, law enforcement sources said.
When the line was repeated by Bronx Assistant District Attorney Richard Fasano in court, Valerie Solis’ family reacted in horror, according to the Daily News.
Authorities allege that Virgil Solis stabbed his wife to death at around 8:30am on Monday in her apartment, which is located in the Tremont section of the Bronx.
‘(He) then called several people including his parole officer and several members of the victim’s family to report to them what he had done,’ Fasano said.
