Angle's wife was found dead in their Dormont residence on last. Paramedics and police responded to a domestic disturbance call at approximately 6:24 a.m. local time to find Donna not breathing.
Angle, 62, waived his right to a preliminary hearing on homicide charges on Friday. His brother Kurt was in the courtroom, seen hugging the family of Donna Angle, his deceased sister-in-law.
David told police that he rejected an offer for alcohol from Donna, which exploded into a huge argument. He claims that Donna attempted to kick him, and he countered by grabbing her arms, placing his foot on her chest and pulling back. She lost consciousness, and never woke up despite his claims that he attempted to revive her.
Kurt Angle's manager Dave Hawk issued a statement to the Post Gazette, saying "Due to the situation Kurt would appreciate if you can honor his family's request for privacy at his difficult time."
David Angle is not to be confused with Eric Angle, who appeared alongside Kurt during his WWE run on several occasions.
