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

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

KANSAS CITY, 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 hospitalised 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?”

You’ve heard it said that “ignorance of the law excuses no one,” and that’s usually true, except in the case of pedophile rapist Adil Rashid, who avoided the can because he “didn’t know” sex with 13-year-olds is illegal. He said he wasn’t aware it was illegal for him to have sex with the girl because of his education, and the judge decided to let him off the hook.

Rashid did admit to having sex with the girl, explaining that he had been “tempted by her” after they met online. He was arrested after talking about the rendezvous with a friend, and explained that while he was reluctant to sleep with the girl due to her age, he ultimately relented after she seduced him.

101-Year-Old Man Retires From Running Marathons

Well, it was bound to happen. Fauja Singh, the old guy who is too old to prove how old he is, announced he will be retiring from running marathons. It’s worth mentioning again, though, that he is almost 102 years old and still actively running marathons. Next month’s Hong Kong Marathon on February 24, however, will be his last. He’ll turn 102 five weeks later.

12-Year-Old Gives Birth While on School Field Trip

The 12-year-old Dutch girl from Groningen was not aware that she was pregnant and started complaining of stomach pains while she was out on a field trip.

Teachers realised the girl was in labour and called emergency services. Miraculously, the 12-year-old girl gave birth to a healthy baby girl. She was then taken to the hospital for treatment but has refused to name the father when questioned by the police.

The girl will be sent to a foster care home once she is released from the hospital.
