George Sanders

An 86-year-old man who carried out a mercy killing by shooting his ailing wife in the head was sentenced to probation on Friday after an emotional hearing where family members tearfully spoke on his behalf.

 

George Sanders could have faced more than 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to manslaughter. The judge opted for probation.

 

The World War II veteran told authorities his wife was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1969, and the couple moved from Washington state to the retirement community of Sun City outside Phoenix in the 1970s for the warm, dry climate.

 

Virginia Sanders, 81, had been diagnosed with gangrene on her foot just a few days before the shooting.

 

In a videotaped confession, Sanders said his wife begged him to kill her. Wrapped in a blanket as he sat being questioned by a detective, Sanders appeared frail and tired in the hours after he shot his wife in the head.

 

“She never wanted to outlive me and be left at the mercy of someone else,” he said.

 

“We loved each other so much,” Sanders said. “It was a wonderful life in spite of all the hard things we had at the end.”

 

Sanders was initially charged with first-degree murder for the Nov. 9 shooting but later pleaded guilty to manslaughter in what attorneys on both sides have called a “mercy killing.”

 

“We did a lot of things together, always loved each other,” he told the detective, adding that her health began to deteriorate over the last few years. “I took care of her through that day and night,” Sanders said.

 

Eventually, as his own health deteriorated, he said the couple hired a caregiver. He said his wife had been diagnosed with gangrene on her foot just a few days before the shooting and was set to be admitted to a hospital, then a nursing home.

 

“It was just the last straw,” Sanders said. “She didn’t want to go to that hospital … start cutting her toes off.”

 

He said he talked it over with his wife and she begged him to kill her.

 

“I said, `I can’t do it honey,”‘ he told police. “She says, `Yes you can.”‘

 

Sanders said he got his revolver and wrapped a towel around it so the bullet wouldn’t go into the kitchen.

 

“She says, `Is this going to hurt,’ and I said, `You won’t feel a thing,”‘ he said.

 

“She was saying, `Do it. Do it. Do it.’ And I just let it go,” Sanders added.

 

He sat in the room at the sheriff’s office for about five hours as his wife was hospitalized. The bullet didn’t kill her. She died a few days later. After several hours, the detective came back in.

 

“Virginia was at this present moment currently still alive but not expected to make it. She’s not expected to live,” the detective told him.

 

Sanders appeared distraught.

 

“I think of her laying in her bed and it haunts me. I’ve taken care of her all these years and to think of somebody else doing it that really doesn’t care,” he said. “Terrible.”

 

A few minutes later, a deputy came into the room and handcuffed him, then led him out the door to be fingerprinted.

 

“I sit here and I don’t know how I could have done that,” Sanders said. “It seemed to make sense at the time.”

“”””Allegri: “Una vittoria per Claudio Lippi. Balotelli sta maturando”

di Marco Vailati

ALLEGRI

Una grande prestazione da dedicare a Claudio Lippi, il giornalista rossonero di Milan Channel scomparso tragicamente in settimana in un incidente in moto. Questo è quello che vuole Massimiliano Allegri e così Massimiliano Allegri ha aperto la conferenza stampa pre ChievoMilan. “Ci aspetta una partita molto difficile, il Chievo sta giocando bene ed è in ottima condizione – ha affermato il tecnico toscano riferendosi alla partita in programma domani alle 18,30 a Verona -. Ci sarà da lottare fino alla fine, ci sarà da soffrire. Il Chievo ha una retroguardia solida, in avanti ha qualità per dare fastidio – ha proseguito Allegri -. Dovremo essere bravi a tenere il ritmo dei nostri avversari e dovremo far valere le nostre qualità tecniche e sarà importante non concedere il contropiede, che il Chievo sviluppa molto bene”.

Chievo-Milan è una gara insidiosa per i rossoneri, i quali tuttavia stanno andando forte e, dopo un inizio di stagione molto negativo, hanno riagganciato saldamente la zona Champions, ma Allegri non abbassa la guardia: “In questo momento siamo al terzo posto – ha commentato l’allenatore rossonero -, per mantenerlo bisogna puntare al secondo. Se abbiamo un approccio diverso, troppo conservativo, rischiamo di tenere un atteggiamento eccessivamente difensivo”. E per conquistare un posto nella più prestigiosa competizione europea è stato e sarà fondamentale Balotelli, reduce da tre gol e prestazioni da protagonista con la Nazionale. Super Mario, inoltre, sembra maturato molto soprattutto sotto l’aspetto caratteriale e Allegri non è preoccupato dal fatto che nella stagione 2008/2009, quando indossava la maglia dell’Inter, Balotelli a fine partita proprio in casa del Chievo pronunciò parole molto polemiche verso il pubblico veronese: “Credo stia migliorando sotto questo aspetto – le parole di Allegri sul carattere caldo di Super Mario Balotelli -, non ha avuto reazioni e non deve averle. Con l’indifferenza deve riuscire a zittire quelli che eventualmente saranno degli episodi brutti, che fino a questo momento ci sono stati sui campi di calcio e che piano piano vanno eliminati migliorando la cultura sportiva e l’educazione. Domani giocherà sereno e tranquillo, non deve innervosirsi”. Qualche assente, domani per il Milan, e ancora qualche dubbio per Allegri: “Zapata non l’ho convocato per via del fuso orario e poi ha perso un po’ di allenamenti – le spiegazioni dell’allenatore ex Cagliari -. Boateng ha preso un colpo a Palermo e a Firenze sarà sicuramente a disposizione, così come Pazzini. Constant ha una sindrome influenzale, mentre a centrocampo devo ancora decidere chi far giocare”.””””

ALLEGRI

A great performance to devote to Claudio Lippi, journalist AC Milan Milan Channel died tragically in a week in a motorcycle accident. This is what he wants Massimiliano Allegri Massimiliano Allegri and so opened the press conference pre Chievo – Milan . “We expect a very difficult game, Chievo is playing well and is in excellent condition – said the technician Tuscan referring to the game tomorrow at 18.30 in Verona -. We will have to fight until the end, we will have to suffer. Chievo have a solid rear, forward it to annoy quality – continued Allegri -. We have to be good at keeping the pace of our opponents and we rely on our technical qualities and it is important not to allow the counterattack, that Chievo develops very well. ”

Chievo-Milan is a tricky race for the Rossoneri, but these are going strong, and after a very bad start to the season, they hung up firmly the Champions League places, but Allegri does not lower his guard: “Right now we’re in third place – said the Milan coach – to keep it you have to point to the second. If we have a different approach, too conservative, we may keep an excessively defensive posture. ” And to win a place in the most prestigious European competition has been and will be a key Balotelli, back from three goals and performance leading the national team.Super Mario also seems matured a lot especially from the character and Allegri is not worried by the fact that in the 2008/2009 season, when he wore the shirt of Inter, Balotelli after the game right away to Chievo spoke words to much controversy the public from Verona: “I think he’s improving in this respect – the words of Allegri on the warm character of Super Mario Balotelli -, had no reactions and should not have them. With indifference must be able to silence those who may be ugly incidents, which up to this time there were on the football field and that will gradually be eliminated by improving the sports culture and education.Tomorrow will play calm and peaceful, must not get nervous. ” Some absent tomorrow for Milan, and still some doubt Allegri: “Zapata I have not called because of the time zone and then lost a little ‘training – explanations of coach former Cagliari -. Boateng has taken a hit in Palermo and Florence will surely be available, as well as Pazzini. Constant flu syndrome, while in midfield I have yet to decide who to play. ”
