SAINT AUGUSTINE, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) - Luis Toledo's jailhouse confession played in court Thursday.
He said, "She came at me. She grabbed me in the back and scratches are back here. I got so tired of her grabbing on me, (chop motion to neck) then she fell on the floor and she couldn't breathe."
Two days after his arrest in October 2013, Toledo said through tears that he killed his wife, Yessenia Suarez, in self-defense.
He claimed a neighbor killed her kids with an ax.
A much different story was told the day before when he told investigators he had no idea what happened to his wife and her two kids.
Luis Toledo was questioned for hours in the Volusia County jail.
Under arrest, he was accused of hitting his wife Yessenia Suarez at her Lake Mary workplace. And at the time, he was a prime suspect in the disappearance of Suarez and her two children from their Deltona home.
Toledo told investigators in the October 2013 videos that he would like to help them find his wife and her kids.
He also talked about their relationship. He said he got into an argument with Suarez the day before when he discovered Suarez was having an affair with a coworker.
Toledo told deputies he was suspicious recently and installed an app on Suarez's phone tracking her texts, emails, phone calls, and GPS location.
Toledo told deputies Suarez asked him for a divorce while on an out of town work trip with her lover.
