Italian woman tries to kill husband with rolling pin, poison

Milan, February 27 - An elderly woman in Italy who tried to kill her disabled husband with a rolling pin, then with drugs, and finally suffocation has been arrested for attempted murder. The husband, who is 77 and has difficultly walking, was treated in hospital for bleeding from his head after his 75-year-old wife walloped him with a rolling pin. The woman, who reportedly said she was tired of caring for him, is now under house arrest at her daughter's home. The attack began Tuesday afternoon when she gave him five sleeping pills, intending to suffocate him once he passed out. However, she instead gave him antihistamines that only stunned the elderly man, who fought off the plastic bag his wife used to try and suffocate him. To subdue her victim, the woman allegedly cracked him on the head a few times with the rolling pan, causing some head injuries. Police say the woman is now sorry for her actions.
