Kurt Angle's older brother David was arrested on Sunday and charged with homicide after allegedly killing his wife Donna inside of the couple's home in Dormont, Pa.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the 62-year-old confessed to killing his 57-year-old wife at around 3 a.m. on Sunday after she offered him vodka and continued to "badger him about drinking with her." In an interview with police, Angle said that the couple fought often and that he has "anger issues." He also revealed that, during their argument on Sunday, he "grabbed both of her arms, pulled her off the couch, put his foot on her chest, and then pulled." She became unconscious a short time later and was pronounced dead early Sunday morning after she was taken to a nearby hospital.

Kurt Angle's manager Dave Hawk has confirmed that David is Kurt's brother. He also released a short statement on behalf of the Olympian-turned-WWE wrestler.

"Due to the situation, Kurt would appreciate if you can honor his family's request for privacy at this difficult time," he told the Post-Gazette.
