Md. man allegedly kills wife

By Debbi Wilgoren

A 33-year-old Silver Spring woman was found dead early Wednesday after her husband called police to say he had killed her, authorities said.

Montgomery County police said Bernardo Paz Flores-Olvera, 32, called 911 from a payphone moments before midnight.

Police went to his apartment, in the 1000 block of Quebec Terrace, and found Elizabeth Velez Vasquez dead, with obvious trauma on her body. Police did not specify the nature of the trauma.

The couple has children, but police said they were not in the apartment when Vasquez's body was found. Police said they are pursuing charges against Olvera, and awaiting an autopsy to determine the exact cause and manner of death for Vasquez

Does this mean he gets less time for confessing? I know it saves us tax payers money now that he has confessed to this, unless somehow his wonderful lawyer drags this to court and tries to prove insanity. The poor children, I hope they have other family in the area who can take care of them. I wonder if there is some kind of trust fund being started for them, now that they have lost both parents.

His middle name means "peace" and he brutally kills his wife. Que ironia.

Poor lady. Hope they find a good home for her kids.

When Hispanic girlfriends' waistlines exceed 50 inches, the Hispanic boyfriends get a hankerin' for thinner.

This man is going to say "NOT GUILTY" when he goes before a judge. He called the police but somehow that will be dismissed. I feel so sorry for the children; I'm sure they were witness to nasty fights between their parents. Mom RIP.
