Wrestler Kurt Angle’s brother accused of killing wife over vodka

Wrestler Kurt Angle’s Brother Accused of Killing Wife over Vodka

The brother of pro wrestler and former Olympian Kurt Angle has been charged in the death of a suburban Pittsburgh woman.

Allegheny County homicide detectives say 62-year-old David Angle was arguing with 57-year-old Donna Angle about vodka. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported David said the disagreement started when Donna tried to badger him into drinking with her.

“He said all of their arguments revolved around alcohol and added that he has ‘anger issues,’ ” county homicide Detective Scott Towne wrote in a criminal complaint.

The suspect tells police his wife tried to kick him, so he dragged her off a couch, stepped on her chest and pulled her arms before she became unconscious.

That’s when Angle says he tried to revive the woman as someone called 911 about 6:30 a.m. Sunday.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Angle, who lived with his wife in the Pittsburgh suburb of Dormont.

He remains jailed without bond in the Allegheny County Jail on Monday on a single count of criminal homicide.
