    Authorities were called to the home on Sunday to check on the welfare of 65-year-old Kathleen Wilkinson, who had not been heard from in several days. The responding deputy from the Saratoga County Sheriff's Department was greeted at the door by her husband, who eventually allowed investigators into the residence.

    Police: Arrest made in Malta homicide

    http://www.dailygazette.com/news/2014/jun/02/homicide-malta/

    MALTA — Investigators believe a 69-year-old Malta man killed his wife during a physical altercation at their 9 Meadow Rue Place home and then continued to live in the residence over the weekend with her body in the bedroom. :eek:

    "... His wife was strangled and asphyxiated, an autopsy determined...."

    "...Wilkinson was charged with second-degree murder..."

    Terrible way to die. Watching movies and tv I thought strangling was like you just instantly fall asleep with little damage except maybe a mark on your neck. But reading a little more about it (and without being too graphic), it can take a while and can get very gruesome.
    Poor Kathleen.
    I think maybe he should be charged with first degree murder ! It semmed like he had to have thought about it for a bit; and he could have changed his mind while she was still alive.
    MOO

    It says they were married for 46 years! That is an awful long time to be married and I wonder how many of those years were spent in misery. For the fight to get that out of hand (he apparently had a black eye and she is dead by strangulation) that tells me the fights have been going on for quite some time and there was plenty of rage and hate in that relationship! He obviously really did not care for her, he just left her lying on the floor where he dropped her for several days. How long was he planning on living with her body like that I wonder?

    Son and daughter live in Boston area and one of them called the police to make a welfare check as mom hadn't been heard from. I might have to do a drive by of the house.

    Kind of makes one wonder if these fights had been going on for a while and if the kids had called before about their mom ?
    Too bad she couldn't have gone to live with one of them ?
    Of course I do not know the whole story and maybe the husband would have forced the wife to move back ?

    :moo:
