So early for a heated argument. Must have been a huge spray can as well.

RIP old man. Next life will be happier.

A spray can? How is that a deadly weapon? Or do they mean something like a liquid gas canister?

Justifiable homicide?

As I read the headline about to click to read the article, two thoughts ran thru my mind:

Woman arrested over murder of 83-year-old husband: wife is 35 and he, was wealthy.

Woman arrested over murder of 83-year-old husband: Because she felt overwhelmed caring for him any further.

After all these years all she has to offer him is death, how sad.

And yet there are people out there that would seek to justify this heinous murder, by hoping her reason was that she was tired of dealing with a terminal illness.

Sick.

Jail isn't going to make much of a difference unless she lives to be a centenarian. Either way, she should be locked up and never released again.
