PD: Man beats estranged wife to death with toilet tank lid

TOLLESON, AZ (CBS5) -

A Tolleson man faces a possible murder charge after police said he beat his estranged wife to death with a toilet tank lid.

Edgardo Luis Claudio-Marrero, 48, was arrested and booked into jail on a charge of second-degree murder Saturday after investigators found the body of SreymonClaudio, of Mesa, in an upstairs bathtub in his house.

Police said Claudio-Marrero struck his wife after an argument, punching her and pushing her down the stairs at his Tolleson home and hitting her with the toilet tank lid until it broke.

Police said they were called by Claudio's boyfriend, Jerry Turner, who told police she had gone to her estranged husband's house because Claudio-Marrero had pawned some of her jewelry without her permission.

Turner said his girlfriend had dropped him off at a nearby fast-food restaurant to keep their relationship from Claudio-Marrero and after three hours had passed, Turner took a taxi to the Tolleson home before calling police.

Police knocked on the door of the home for about 15 minutes before Claudio-Marrero emerged from the garage and gave up.

He told police that his wife of five years had moved in with his sister and that she had recently gone to Las Vegas. He said he learned of her relationship with Turner from Facebook photos.

He admitted pawning her jewelry because of money troubles and confronted her about Turner before he "snapped" and attacked her, punching and pushing into a downstairs bathroom. He later dragged her body up the stairs to the other bathroom.

Claudio-Merrero said Turner and Claudio were co-workers and that he believed Turner kept him from advancement at a manufacturing company when he worked there.
