OAK CREEK, WI (WTAQ) - Prosecutors said an Oak Creek man killed his blind wife of 56 years because he couldn't take her nagging anymore.
76-year-old Jack Lang was charged Thursday in Milwaukee County with first-degree intentional homicide.
A criminal complaint said Lang and his wife June were driving to lunch on Wednesday when she called him a baby, because he didn't feel well and he wanted to go home.
When they got there, authorities said Lang took a 22-caliber gun from his closet, told his wife again to stop nagging him, and shot her when she didn't.
Officials said he also tried killing himself, but two bullets missed and the other grazed him in the head. Lang then called 911 to report the shooting.
Prosecutors said June had criticized her husband for no longer being able to do work around the house and, "He could not give her a good time anymore."
