Man Killed Girlfriend in Texas, Told Wife

ATLANTA (AP) - Police say a 40-year-old man killed his girlfriend in Texas, then fled to Atlanta and confessed to his estranged wife.

Michael Lucking was being held Sunday in the DeKalb County Jail as a fugitive from justice. WSB-TV reports that DeKalb County police arrested Lucking after his estranged wife called 911.

Investigators said Lucking shot and killed his 26-year-old girlfriend on Thursday.

It was unclear Sunday whether Lucking had a defense attorney.

    What good did that do? She turned you in.I guess you thought she'd feel sorry for you and keep the secret.After you told your wife,she probably was in fear for her own safety.She done the right thing. You do not need to be out walking around.
