    Australia - Carole Schaer, 61, shot to death, Adelaide, 17 Nov 2004

    A MAN who shot his estranged wife in a busy Adelaide department store says he would have been better off if he had also killed himself.

    "(Given) the position I'm now in, that may have been the better thing," 70-year-old Simon Schaer told the South Australian Supreme Court today. "I'm in a far worse position by being alive today than being dead - I mean that. I have nothing."

    Schaer fatally shot his wife Carole in November last year as she worked in the handbag and shoe section of the Myer department store in Adelaide's Rundle Mall. Before the shooting, he set alight the suburban flat the couple had jointly owned, and in which Schaer had been living.



    I wonder how long she stayed with this POS before she realised what an a**hole he was ,he murders her then complains about his position he is in,
