Barton Seltmann murdered Margaret Seltmann: Cops

A murder suspect initially played dumb about how his wife died in their kitchen, but he eventually admitted he was the person who beat her to death, according to cops in Lower Pottsgrove Township, Pennsylvania.

Barton Seltmann, 84, faces a count each of first- and third-degree murder.

Authorities said they received a 911 call from Seltmann on Tuesday, according to Montgomery County prosecutors’ press statement and an affidavit obtained by reporter Steve Keeley of Philadelphia Fox affiliate WTXF.

Seltman reportedly said he believed his wife, Margaret Seltmann, 85, to be dead and that someone beat her. He described the kitchen as ransacked, and his wife had been bleeding from the head. Police construed his statements as him pretending that he did not know what happened to her.
