Wrestler Kurt Angle’s brother jailed in wife’s homicide in PA

DORMONT, Pa. (AP) – 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 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.
