Julio Resto tried to strangle his wife.  When that didn't work, he grabbed a kitchen knife, and stabbed her to death.  After killing his wife, Resto tried to kill himself by stuffing a towel into the tailpipe of his vehicle.  When that didn't work, the 51-year-old drove himself to the Waltham police headquarters still clutching the murder weapon, and reportedly told officers, “Shoot me, I have nothing to live for!  I just killed my wife,” according to CBS Boston.
Officers then reportedly subdued Resto with a beanbag gun and took him into custody.  The man was overcome with grief, according to police.  When authorities went to Resto’s home, they discovered Gloria’s body in bed and sleeping alongside her body was her son, whom police say was unharmed.
Gloria’s aunt, who was not identified, told CBS Boston, “She did a lot for everybody. She was just always there for us. Right now we all need our privacy.”
Resto, who is expected to be arraigned January 6 and is being held without bail.
