A man in Kansas accused of murdering his wife, former University of Kansas soccer player Regan Gibbs-Marek, said he killed her because God told him to do so, according to police.
Chad Marek, 26, confessed to murdering his wife and "told us that God told him to do it,” Lawrence Police Chief Rich Lockhart said.
An investigation into the death of Gibbs-Marek, 25, and Marek's mental health is being conducted, authorities said, according to a report.

"There obviously are some preliminary indicators that this person wasn't mentally stable. We call it being in psychosis, so obviously that is something we will be investigating as well as this case continues," Lockhart explained.
The University of Kansas, where Gibbs-Marek played goalie, issued a statement regarding the death of the former Jayhawk.
