A 92 years old woman allegedly killed her son in Arizona because she did not want to be sent to an assisted living facility.
Authorities said Anna Mae Blessing was charged with first degree murder, aggravated assault and kidnapping after authorities found her 72-year-old son dead on Monday at their home in Fountain Hills, Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said.
Blessing hid two pistols in the pockets of her robe and shot her son several times in his bedroom, the sheriff’s office said in a statement.
Her son’s girlfriend was also in the room and said she heard Blessing telling her son she was tired of the way he treated her, court documents said.
“From my understanding, she had thought about it for a few days because there was a dispute regarding her son wanting to put her in an assisted living home,”
Maricopa County Sgt. Bryant Vanejas said.
