A man confessed to murdering his wife, admitting to the police that he snapped and something in his head was just not right.

Ronald Leonard Kachinski, A 76-year-old man from York County called the police on Tuesday, 8:24 a.m. to report that he strangled his wife, Sandra Anderson in their Springfield Township home.

Kachinski said that upon waking up, his head was not feeling good until he snapped. He recalled that he remembers his 72-year-old wife escaping from him but later catching her in the living room. There, he strangled her for a minute which resulted in her death. After a few minutes, Kachinski called the police to report what happened.

Police arrived to find Anderson's lifeless body in the fetal position and York County Coroner Pam Gay said the 72-year-old died by asphyxiation by strangulation and ruled the death a homicide.

Kachinski was arrested Tuesday and arraigned on charges of criminal homicide and strangulation, according to online court documents. He is being held at York County Prison after being denied bail due to the nature of the charges.

In a similar case, a 31-year-old man is being charged with the murder of an 18-year-old girl who was found in ponds near Pembroke Castle, Wales on Friday, Dec. 17.

The deceased was identified as Lily Sullivan who was in a nightclub before she was found strangled to death.

According to reports, she was last seen with Lewis Haines at The Out in Pembroke, West Wales.

Prosecutor Michael Cray told the Haverfordwest Magistrates Court on Tuesday, Dec. 21, how Haines took a lift and went to Paddies nightclub or now known as The Out, Wales Online reported.

He stressed that Haines and Sullivan did not know each other and met at the establishment for the first time. CCTV footage showed the two having a conversation at a table before leaving separately.

However, both were seen again at a nearby lane. From there, it is unclear what happened because there was a gap in the video recording.

"Haines was later seen crossing the mill pond bridge - he was running towards Pembroke Dock. Lily was found deceased in the millpond sometime later," he said.

The body of Sullivan was found in ponds near Pembroke Castle, Wales on the morning of Dec. 17.

Haines appeared before the Haverfordwest Magistrates Court on Tuesday and was remanded into custody by Chairman of the bench David Ellis. He is set to appear once more at the Swansea Crown Court on Thursday, Dec. 23.

Flowers were laid at the millpond where the body of Sullivan was found. She allegedly worked as a supermarket worker with her parents describing her as a kind and caring daughter.

"Lily was a kind and caring daughter who will be deeply missed by everyone. The family are very thankful to all of Lily’s friends for their support,” the family of Sullivan said.

Authorities are urging the public for any information that can help in the case, particularly the ones who may have been present at the nightclub before she died last week.

Sullivan is believed to have been out with friends at that time from about 7:30 p.m. on Thursday.
