`Garrett Anderson told a 911 dispatcher he arrived home to find his wife stabbed in her chest, a knife still beside her, and that he didn’t know what had happened, according to the tape released by police Tuesday.

Anderson placed the call shortly before midnight Nov. 21 from a pay phone a few blocks away from his east Mesa home.

When police arrived to the house, in the 1100 block of East Abilene Avenue, they found the front door open, Anderson’s wife, Chanel, dead, and the couple’s four children inside, safe. [..]

“I need an ambulance really quick to my house,” Anderson told dispatchers. “My wife’s hurt. She needs an ambulance. . . . She got stabbed, please hurry.”

When police asked how his wife got stabbed, Anderson replied, “I don’t know. I wasn’t home.”‘
