Husband arrested after calling 911 and saying he had killed his wife at Orange County home


MISSION VIEJO, California — A 74-year-old Orange County man is under arrest after calling 911 to report he'd killed his wife.

The Sheriff's Department says deputies arrested Gary Lee Parsons at his Mission Viejo home on Tuesday. He was sitting a car outside of the home.

His wife, 73-year-old Barbara Parsons, was found dead inside the home.

Investigators say it appears the couple got into a fight and the woman was fatally injured.

However, the coroner will determine the cause of her death.

Parsons remains jailed on $1 million bail.
