Pennsylvania man, 40, confesses he bludgeoned his Air Force veteran wife with a fireplace poker

A Pennsylvania man has been charged with criminal homicide after police say he confessed to stabbing and bludgeoning his wife to death with a fireplace poker, and then leaving her to die in the basement of their home for two days following an argument about infidelity. 

Daniel Barrett, 40, was described in charging documents as being 'emotional and excited' when he walked into the Plymouth Police Department on Monday evening and admitted to brutally killing his wife, 43-year-old Mary Barrett, two days earlier for cheating on him. 

Officers went to the couple's restored colonial home in the 100 block of Gaylord Avenue and followed a trail of blood through the house and down into the cellar, where they discovered the victim's lifeless body.
