OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An 80-year-old suburban Oklahoma City man has been formally charged in the fatal shooting of his 77-year-old wife, who he said had dementia and that he could no longer care for her.

The Oklahoma County District Attorney’s Office on Tuesday charged Royce Edward Davis of Midwest City with first-degree murder in the Oct. 7 death of Dorothy Davis.

Police say Davis called officers and said he had shot his wife of more than 50 years and would kill himself, but was later talked into surrendering.
