The couple's 14-year-old daughter was sitting in the back seat the entire time, police said.

After allegedly shooting his wife, the man called police and told them what he did, and waited at the scene for officers and paramedics to arrive. Magen David Adom paramedics who arrived minutes later pronounced the woman dead at the scene.

The man was arrested by officers, who will take him for a remand extension on Wednesday morning.
