Tolleson, Arizona (The Weekly Vice) - Edgardo Luis Claudio-Marrero, a 48-year-old Tolleson man was jailed Saturday after he allegedly beat his wife to death with a toilet tank lid.

According to police, Claudio-Marrero's wife confronted him after learning that he had pawned several pieces of her jewelry.

In retaliation, Claudio-Marrero beat his wife with a toilet tank lid until it broke. The woman was found beaten to death in an upstairs bathtub.

Investigators say the victim, identified as Sreymom Claudio, was in the process of divorcing Claudio-Marrero and had moved out of the residence after five years of marriage.

Police were notified by a friend of the victim after she failed to report that she was okay.

Officers who were called to Claudio-Marrero's residence knocked on the door for 15 minutes before he emerged through the garage with cuts on his hands. Claudio-Marrero allegedly admitted that he had punched his wife, pushed her down the stairs, and then beat her with a toilet tank lid until it broke.

Claudio-Marrero told police that he was angry after seeing photographs of his wife with another man on Facebook. He also complained that his wife's new "friend" had prevented him from advancing at his job. Claudio-Marrero and his wife's friend reportedly worked at the same company.

Claudio-Marrero was booked into jail and charged with second-degree murder. His bond was set at $750,000. He is scheduled to appear in court on July 5th.
