Wife Shot Dying Husband in Hospital

From a Washington Post story by Justine McDaniel headlined “Wife shot dying husband in hospital in plan to end his life, police say”:

A 76-year-old woman allegedly shot and killed her terminally ill husband in his hospital room Saturday after they agreed that she would end his suffering because he was too sick to kill himself, according to local law enforcement.

The woman then barricaded herself inside the room, shutting down some hospital operations at AdventHealth hospital in Daytona Beach, Fla., for a few hours. She was arrested just after 3 p.m. after a standoff and will be charged with first-degree murder, police said.
