A Kentucky man suspected of shooting his wife admitted to WLEX reporter Josh Breslow he did it.

“I really didn’t mean to shoot my wife,” Andrew Beverly told Breslow during a jailhouse interview. “I grabbed her and the gun, it went off. Didn’t know where I hit her at, to be honest. I didn’t know where I shot her at. When she was down on the ground, I went beside her and said, ‘Angela are you alright?’ She just didn’t move.”

The Lexington, Ky. NBC affiliate reports the body of Beverly’s wife was found outside her Tennessee home.

The 45-year-old was arrested Wednesday night outside of a Harlan convenience store.

As for what led to the shooting, Beverly said that weeks ago, he had moved out of the home he and his wife shared. He said he was angry when he learned another man was now staying there with her.

“It wasn’t my intention to shoot my wife. It wasn’t no intention at all. My intentions were really to shoot him for being in my house,” said Beverly. “I’m so sorry that it happened. I just wish God would take my life instead of hers because she didn’t deserve that.”
