As ABC11 has previously reported, 64-year-old Mario Vellotti also made a calm 911 call shortly after the shooting and told an operator "I just shot my wife."
Police say Vellotti killed 43-year-old Agata Filipska Vellotti at a townhome community in Wakefield on Colbert Creek Loop near North Forest Pines Elementary School August 30.
According to court records, the couple was separated and fighting for custody of their 6-year-old son. Earlier this summer, a Wake County judge issued a domestic violence protection order against Vellotti.
Mario Vellotti remains in jail charged with murder.
