Before attending to his dying wife Tuesday evening, Dwight Luton wiped down the SUV where she’d been shot.

Surveillance footage from Luton’s Riviera Beach home chronicled the moments before and after Ashley Balius was killed. City police say Balius was shot once in the head and that Luton tried to clean the scene outside the home on North Canterbury Drive.

Luton, 32, was arrested on first-degree murder and evidence-tampering charges hours after his wife’s death. He briefly appeared in court Wednesday where his in-laws passionately vowed to “see this through to the end.”
