(Huntsville, AL) -- Police say an Alabama man suspected of murdering his wife told them he killed her because she talked too much. Investigators testified at a preliminary hearing Wednesday that Robin Penton beat and fatally shot his wife after she sent a text message to a friend. Penton also allegedly killed their three dogs and a parrot before trying to kill himself. The text message that set Penton off said he had only been home five minutes and he was already getting on her nerves. When police arrived on the scene they found a bouquet of plastic flowers and a figurine resting on top of the woman's body.
