KANSAS CITY, Mo. (CBS St. Louis/AP) — A 93-year-old Kansas City man has been charged with killing his 95-year-old wife in what investigators are calling a homicide and attempted suicide.

The Jackson County prosecutor filed the second-degree murder charge Wednesday against Harry Irwin, who remained hospitalized with self-inflicted stab wounds in his chest.

Police have not said how Grace Irwin died. Paramedics who were called to the couple’s home around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday found her in bed, with blood on her head.

A paramedic told police Harry Irwin was unresponsive in a chair, with blood on his shirt and arms. The paramedic says Irwin regained consciousness and said he had killed his wife and himself, then asked, “Why am I awake?”

    Just had my 31st last week, and she has been looking at me in a weird kind of better sleep with one eye open way.

    Maybe earplugs should be the “70th” anniversary gift. The life you save might be your own.

    I can’t help wondering what the particular straw was that sent him over the edge.

    Wow! Usually when you see that someone died at 95,
    you don’t even ask: “What did she die of?”

    So sad to live to that ripe old age, then do this. I’d bet the 55 million aborted children would have loved to live half that long.
