92-year-old woman to stand trial for killing husband

Yo, this is some crazy news out of Australia. In Sydney, a 92-year-old woman is accused of bludgeoning and stabbing her wealthy 98-year-old husband to death: Woman, 92, to stand trial for murder in Australia.

Clara Tang, who allegedly killed husband Ching Yung Tang in their apartment last year after 70 years of marriage, is the oldest woman ever committed to stand trial for murder in Australia:
The elderly woman appeared in a local court last week and was ordered to stand trial in the Supreme Court on a date to be fixed.

Documents tendered by police reportedly detailed how the couple survived the Japanese invasion of China and Mao's Cultural Revolution before moving from Shanghai to Sydney 30 years ago.

Tang, who suffers dementia, allegedly feared her husband was poisoning her food.

The newspaper said that when arrested, Tang was almost totally soaked in blood. Her husband had been stabbed twice in the stomach and his head was bludgeoned.
Mrs. Tang has long suffered from dementia, and it's pretty clear that she was not in her right mind when she killed her husband. It's just gruesome, disturbing, and enormously tragic. More here: Wife, 92, to stand trial for murder.
