In one of the most bizarre reasons given for a murder, a 34-year-old Texas, USA man, Jonathan Edelen, has confessed that he killed his 28-year-old wife, Ceaira Ford, because she would not keep quiet, reports Dallas Morning News.

Edelen told police officers that he and Ford argued in the night after they purchased some marijuana and went to the grocery store.

He complained that his wife wouldn’t stop talking and he had to pick up their television and took it onto the patio to destroy it so she would quiet down but when that didn’t work, he said he put his hand over her mouth and she flipped over the patio railing onto a grassy area below.

The fight then moved to the bedroom, where Edelen allegedly held a pillow over his wife's face until she stopped breathing.

He waited for two days before he called officers and when they went to his house, he reportedly said:

"Put the cuffs on me and take me to jail. I killed my wife.”

He is charged with murder, with bond set at $500,000, according to jail records.
