A 39-year-old man has pleaded guilty to the murder of his wife at their home in Thurmaston.
Baldeep Singh of Dovedale Road pleaded guilty to the murder of 35-year-old Amandeep Kaur at Leicester Crown Court today (Friday 7 July).
He will be sentenced on Monday 4 September.
Police were called at around 2.50pm on Friday 3 February 2017 by Singh stating he had killed his wife as he believed she was going to leave him.
Singh went onto to tell the call handler he had confessed the murder to his father who had told him to call the police.
Officers arrived at the house and found Amandeep dead in her bedroom upstairs. Singh was arrested at the scene and later charged with her murder.
A post mortem examination later revealed she died as a result of a laceration to the neck.
Detective Inspector Chris Barratt, the senior investigating officer, said: “Due to Singh’s actions two young children have lost their mother and he now faces a prison sentence with little or no contact with his children.
“I hope today’s guilty plea will help Amandeep’s family move on with their lives and put the events of her murder behind them.”
