Murder suspect: 'She pushed me over the edge'

Posted: Updated:

STEVENS COUNTY, Wash. - In a 911 tape obtained Monday by KHQ, a 68-year-old man accused of shooting and killing his wife earlier this month tells the 911 dispatcher "she pushed me over the edge finally."

Craig Cosby called 911 shortly before 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 3 and immediately told the dispatcher his name, address and that he just shot and killed his wife.

Later in the call, Cosby is heard saying "she just kept pushing and pushing and pushing."

The dispatcher tries to have Cosby give him more information about the weapon used and its whereabouts, but Cosby apologizes and hangs up less than a minute after reporting that he killed his wife.

Deputies arrived on scene a short time later and arrested Cosby who was in his front yard.

Deputies found Cosby's wife, 53-year-old Susan May Cosby, dead inside their Marcus home in the 1200 block of Overlook Blvd. apparently shot more than once.

Cosby was charged with First Degree Murder and transported to the Stevens County Jail.

Neighbors say the Cosby's had lived in their home in Marcus for more than a decade.
