Virgil Solis allegedly stabbed his wife nearly 50 times in an apartment in New York City — and then called her former lover to brag about the murder.
Solis, 58, allegedly told the man, who fathered a child with the 53-year-old victim, “Go get your daughter, I killed her mother” and “I come to the funeral” in a series of disturbing phone calls, The New York Post reported.
Then, Solis, who for nearly two decades in prison for stabbing and raping a woman in 1998, allegedly called his parole officer and coolly announced that the crime.
He was Later charged with murder, manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon.
Solis, a registered sex offender, had served previous time in prison after a brutal assault of a woman who had refused to have sex with him, the Post reported. During his incarceration, he also spent time in a psychiatric institution.
A friend, who as Coco, told the Daily News that Valerie Solis was going to have to separate from her husband.
“She was planning to divorce him. He had in the prison and he was on parole,” the friend said. “They had arguments and such, but we never thought it would end like this.”
