LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- An advocate that supports victims of domestic violence is concerned the first homicide of the new year coincides with the first of 2013.

Metro police say a 40-year-old man confessed Friday to stabbing his wife to death. Detectives say Richard Dahan told police he got very angry when his wife, Daisy, asked him to sign divorce papers.

While police say there was no known history of domestic violence with this couple, Lisa Lynn Chapman of Safe Nest says highly controlling relationships can escalate and become dangerous.

Warning signs include your partner trying to control every aspect of your life, disrespect and show of force such as grabbing or pushing.

Chapman wants Nevadans to know if there is any indication of an unsafe relationship to call the Safe Nest hotline at (702) 646-4981. It's better to have a safety plan before it's too late, and you don't have to do it alone.
