EL PASO - We have new insight tonight into El Paso's latest murder; the insight, is being provided by the accused killer.
Brian Engleton is in jail tonight for the stabbing death of his wife, Diedre. He claims, she's the victim of her own undoing.
Just as Brian Engleton was being taken into the El Paso County Detention Center this evening, for allegedly killing his wife, the 42-year-old suspect told a Newschannel 9 photographer, that there was plenty of blame to go around for his estranged wife's death.
"Her mom, her sister, friend Carol, the guy she was having an affair with, all of them are responsible for this," said Engleton.
Diedre Engleton was stabbed to death yesterday at the beauty salon where she worked. Less than 24 hours later, police cornered Engleton at a Northeast El Paso motel, and arrested him today.
Those close to the victim told police that Engleton was the killer, and that he had threatened his wife in the past. Police are confident they've got the person responsible. However, the suspect, seemed ambivalent this evening, when he was asked what he expected to happen to him.
"I'll see whatever the court says," said Engleton.
Family and friends of the victim told us that the Engletons had been having marital problems, and that she recently had a restraining order against him.
