(WITI) — Wisconsin police say a 76-year-old man killed his wife and tried to kill himself — allegedly because she was “nagging” him.
Police say Jack Lang shot his wife June several times in their bedroom on Wednesday.
He told police he was upset after the victim called him names and harassed him while they were going out for lunch.
Lang also said his wife had been nagging him for a few weeks, and he’d had enough.
After he shot his wife to death, police say Lang tried to shoot himself in the head, but failed.
He’s being held on a first degree murder charge.
