KENDALL, Fla. (AP) - Police say a 78-year-old South Florida man became so enraged when his wife refused to cook him a hamburger that he stabbed her to death.

Miami-Dade police say Bartolo Gelsomino confessed to killing his wife 71-year-old Ana Gelsomino on Jan. 21 and staging a burglary to cover up the crime. He faces second-degree murder charges and will be arraigned Feb. 11.

The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/114u8gX) reports the couple's daughter found her mother's body in the home. As police searched the home, Gelsomino - a Sicily-born man who primarily speaks Italian - showed up. They noticed two possible blood stains on his shirt. Gelsomino told police he stabbed his wife during an argument.

He then led detectives to a trash bin in a nearby warehouse where he tossed the knife.
