Man says he killed sick wife because he couldn’t afford her medication

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — A Florida man killed his wife earlier this week because he said he could no longer pay for her medication, according to authorities. 

William Hager, 86, told the  St. Lucie Countysheriff’s officials that his wife of more than 50 years was in poor health and pain.  He said he could no longer afford to pay for Carolyn Hager’s medication, so he shot her in the head on Monday with a .32-caliber revolver as she slept.

He put the gun down, drank coffee and then contacted family members and told them that he killed the 78-year-old.
