LARGO (FOX 13) -

A Largo man is accused of killing his wife and confessing to his neighbor.

Investigators in Pinellas County are still looking into what led to the death of Mary Pierson, but police believe she was killed overnight by her husband.

Largo police say Richard Pierson got into a fight with his wife, and then they say at some point he killed her during the argument.

Shortly after, investigators say he walked over to his next door neighbor's house and told them about the crime.

The neighbor called police.

Pierson is charged with first-degree murder. He remains in a Pinellas County jail this morning.
