From the BBC News Website:

A 92-year-old US woman shot and killed her son, 72, in order to avoid being sent into a care home, police say.

Anna Mae Blessing, who is charged with murder, contemplated her son's intentions to put her into care for days, according to court documents.

"You took my life, so I'm taking yours," she reportedly said as she was escorted out of the Arizona home she shared with her son and his girlfriend.

Mrs Blessing told police she had intended to kill herself, too.

The incident happened in the morning of 2 July in the town of Fountain Hills, Maricopa county, police records obtained by local media say.

Mrs Blessing's son, whose name has not been released, wanted her to leave for an assisted living facility because she "had become difficult to live with".
