88-year-old man stabs wife in apparent mercy killing in Spain

An 88-year-old man fatally stabbed his ailing wife Thursday in an apparent mercy killing in Spain after she tried to commit suicide but failed, police said.
Police in the eastern town of Segorbe in the Valencia region arrested the man after he tried to take his own life, a local police official said, speaking under ground rules which forbid him giving his name.
The 82-year-old woman had been ill for a long time with an undisclosed disease, he said.
