Yes, it is. Very sad.
Did you read the News9 comments? According to one person, the elderly man had Alzheimer's and this was a risk factor for the homicide. If this is true, I would think the prosecutor will have to determine the elderly man's mental state before they decide to charge him with homicide in the death of his wife.
Yes, he did, and from what I heard, he doesn't even realize what he did. He would never have hurt her, in a normal state of mind. He loved her.

I have known Darrell and Trevia since we were 18 years old. My husband and Darrell worked together for years and our children was born the same year. I know that Darrell would never hurt Trevia ever. They had been married since 1957-58 and I seen them every few years since they lived in Wewoka. I was planning on going up in Oct. and I stay with them when I do. There had to be something really wrong with their health to have this happen. Darrell has to not know what has happened as he loved Trevia more than ever the longer they were married. I am so sorry I did not get up this summer to see them both. They were both truly great friends to me.
