Melbourne, Dec 27 (ANI): An elderly Taiwanese man allegedly put his ailing wife to death by pushing a screwdriver through her skull, weeks after he said on his blog he might kill her as an act of mercy.
Wang Ching-hsi reportedly posted his intentions on a blog, saying she was suffering Parkinson's disease and had broken her left leg, reports News.com.au.
According to the United Daily News and other papers, the 83-year-old former engineer is suspected of giving his wife sleeping pills early Sunday before killing her.
"Why I did this? It's all on my blog," Wang told journalists while being taken away by Taipei police, according to footage shown on local television.
A blog entry dated December 5, which appeared to be Wang's remained available today and detailed in candid terms how Wang's 80-year-old wife, Sun Yuan-ping, had lost the will to live.
"She is miserable," the blog said.
It referred to an agreement the couple had arrived at a decade ago "to die in peace", and quoted Wang as telling his wife "when the time comes, I will kill you".
After allegedly killing his wife, Wang called the police to turn himself in and waited in his apartment for the officers to arrive. (ANI)
