An Orlando police report said 42-year-old George Joseph McShane was arrested Tuesday after officers found him inside his running SUV in his garage, attempting to kill himself.

Police removed McShane from the SUV and found the body of Kristen McShane dead in the couple's bed, covered with a comforter, The Orlando Sentinel reported.

McShane told detectives he logged into his wife's Facebook account and posted that she'd dropped her phone in the toilet so family and friends wouldn't worry if she didn't respond.

He's charged with second-degree murder and domestic battery by strangulation.

He remains in jail. Records don't list an attorney for him.
