Man in bloodstained clothes approaches Pasco deputy, turns himself in for wife's murder

Authorities say a man with blood on his clothes approached a Pasco deputy and turned himself in for his wife's murder.

According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, the deputy was leaving a Race Trac convenience store on State Road 56 in Wesley Chapel when he was approached by 29-year-old Marco Stephens "who had what appeared to be blood all over the front of his clothes," deputies said. 

Stephens allegedly made incriminating statements about a crime that took place in Jacksonville and threatened to kill himself, but ended up surrendering to authorities, deputies said. 

Deputies notified the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, which sent detectives down to Pasco County to arrest Stephens for his wife's murder.

Further details were not immediately available.
