Man Admitted To Killing His Wife Because She Won't Stop Talking

A Man threw a blanket over his " loudmouthed" wife, covered her with a pillow and sat on  it until she gave up. Below is how Dallas News is reporting it:

A Dallas man who confessed to killing his wife last year because she wouldn’t stop talking was sentenced to 11 years in prison Friday.
Jonathan Edelen, 34, was charged with murder in the June 2015 death of Ceaira Ford. Jurors convicted him of manslaughter Thursday before sentencing him today. He was also fined $7,500.
Earlier this week, Edelen took the stand in his defense and called his wife a “loudmouth.”
“Happy or not, you were going to hear about it,” Edelen testified Wednesday. “She got aggressive and territorial towards other women.”

Ford, 28, had been dead for a while when police were called to the couple’s apartment at the Primrose Oaks apartments on Perryton Drive near Kiest Park in west Oak Cliff. “Put the cuffs on me and take me to jail,” Edelen told officers, according to a police report. “I killed my wife.”
Authorities initially thought Ford might have died of an overdose because they found a bottle of prescription medication.
But Edelen told investigators that he and his wife were arguing that night when he threw a blanket on Ford, jumped on top of her and held a pillow across her head until she stopped breathing, according to his arrest warrant affidavit.
Two days later, he called police.
