Scottsdale man changes plea in wife’s strangulation

PHOENIX — A man accused of killing his wife at their Scottsdale home eight
months ago has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

Maricopa County prosecutors said 61-year-old Michael Jay Cohn entered his plea
Monday.

He originally pleaded not guilty in the case in April and was facing a charge
of first-degree murder.

Scottsdale police said Cohn called 911 on March 27 and said he had strangled his
60-year-old wife.

Responding officers found Linda Cohn’s body in a bathroom.

Officers said they noticed blood on Michael Cohn’s hands and scratches on his
neck and he asked for an attorney.
