DENTON (1080 KRLD) - A North Texas man is in jail, after he called 9-1-1 to confess a crime.

"The subject called us and told us that he had just beat his wife over the head with a hammer," says Denton police officer Brian Cose.

Police Officers responding to a domestic disturbance found the victim at a neighbor's house, covered in blood. Brian West told officers the couple was arguing about his adult son living with them while on parole, and said he bashed his wife in the head with a hammer a half-dozen times.

The victim confirms the story, and tells investigators West is bipolar and forgot to take his medication.

She was treated at the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

West is in jail, his bail set at $50,000, on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
