Missouri man, 93, charged with murdering wife, 95

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?"

Neighbors said the wife had been in poor health. The couple's children and grandchildren visited them often.
