93-Year-Old Man Kills His Wife Of 70 Years Because He ‘Couldn’t Take It Anymore’
World

A 93-year-old man from Kansas City has been charged with stabbing to death his 95-year-old wife of 70 years after a heated dispute earlier this week.

According to the Kansas City Star, Harry Irwin has been accused of taking the life of his wife, Grace Irwin, with whom he shares seven children, before unsuccessfully trying to kill himself.

Immediately after the incident, Irwin told the nurses tending to him that he “just couldn’t take it anymore.”

Suffering from debilitating cancer, Irwin was the primary carer of his very sick wife. After the alleged stabbing he slit both of his wrists and plunged a knife into his chest in a failed murder-suicide.

Court records, seen by the newspaper, claim Irwin admitted to killing his wife to paramedics at the scene of the crime.

His daughter called police to the house early Wednesday morning after receiving “a troubling phone call” from her father. 

She rushed to the scene to find her mother dead in the shared bed and her father slumped unconscious in a nearby chair. He was covered with blood and holding a knife.

The family later found a suicide note in the home, according to the report. Harry Irwin has been charged with second-degree murder.
