A 36-year-old man allegedly stabbed his wife 50 times, bit her face and then told cops she had died by suicide, police in Wisconsin say.

A criminal complaint filed in La Crosse County Circuit Court and obtained by several local media outlets says authorities responded to a home in the town of Shelby for a call about a dead person. Cops arrived to find Zachary Fritz at the front door covered in blood and screaming “she’s upstairs,” the complaint reportedly said. They went upstairs to find Fritz’s wife’s body holding a knife in her left hand in the main bedroom with blood all around her.
