FARGO – Henry Deniger Sr., the 49-year-old man arrested in St. Cloud, Minn., Wednesday night, confessed to killing his wife, 52-year-old Kathye Raven Deniger, according to charges filed Thursday in Cass County District Court.

An affidavit written by Fargo Police Detective Mark Voigtschild states that after being arrested in St. Cloud, Deniger “said he had killed Kathye Deniger.”

Deniger is charged with murder, a Class AA Felony which carries a maximum penalty of life in prison if convicted.

Deniger is also charged with one count of tampering with evidence, a Class C felony. Documents state that police discovered a knife in a sink at the crime scene with “some apparent blood on it,” although it appeared to have been washed off.

Deniger is currently being held at the Stearns County Jail.

Fargo police are still working to establish a timeline of when the stabbing took place.
