The wife should be charged with manslaughter. She continued to feed him in lieu of getting real help. The gall of her to blame this on ANYONE but him and herself.

Would YOU continue to perform an action to a loved one that you KNEW was going to kill them?

I happened to know this man and his wife was doing what he wanted done. Don't criticize someone until you know all the facts. Daniel was a good colleague and when he was driving the bus, a great bus driver. Kids loved him and he had a knack of getting them to behave without screaming or yelling. RIP, brother.
