Process: Confession: 85-year-old killed dependent wife

An 85-year-old man admitted to the Munich II Regional Court that he had killed his wife, who was in need of care, after 65 years together. "I regret it every day," he said in a statement his defense attorney read in court on Tuesday -- and "that I cannot forgive myself for what I did to my wife that day."

The public prosecutor accuses the man of manslaughter. "I'll come to you now, I'll kill you," said the accused before he is said to have hit his wife with a stick, a souvenir from a joint stay in South Africa, and then strangled her.

After a brain hemorrhage, his wife had health problems, could no longer run the household and was no longer mentally clear, said the accused, who apparently does not consider himself to be guilty. "For me it was like being driven by an unknown power," he said in his statement, which his defense attorney read.
