OLDSMAR, Fla. - After a brief search, Pinellas County deputies located 52-year-old Robbie Dinkins at a Clearwater Wawa gas station Monday morning, along with this wife’s missing Hyundai Sonata.
Investigators said Dinkins admitted to stabbing his wife multiple times after getting into an argument over the weekend.
The woman’s body was discovered Sunday in the couple’s home in Oldsmar, but the victim's car and husband were both gone.
Dinkins had been considered a person of interest in the case. Deputies say he is now considered a suspect and faces a charge of second-degree murder.
“It is a surprise and it's a detriment, in a way,” said neighbor Joseph Tracy, who is now caring for the couple's dog, Bella.
He says the dog appears traumatized.
Tracy told FOX 13 he never suspected anything was wrong with the couple.
“They were nice, they communicated fine, no issues whatsoever, like I said we were friendly neighbors,” Tracy said.
