I'm not sure how I feel about this.... Mercy killing?
A southeastern Kentucky man charged with killing his wife says he fatally shot her because she asked him to end her suffering from breast cancer.
"She told me she wanted me to end her pain. All I said [was] 'Jay, all I’ve got is what the doctor gave you.' She said 'No, I want you to stop my pain for good,'" Ernest Chris Chumbley told FoxLexington.com from his cell in the Laurel County Detention Center
Neighbors told FoxLexington.com that the couple had been happily married for more than 20 years, but Virginia Chumbley's breast cancer had ravaged her health.
“She was hurting real bad. We could hear her at night like she was gasping for air,” said Stanley Campbell, the Chumbley's next-door neighbor.
I just did what she asked,"Chumbely said from his cell. "And I would expect no different from her if I was asking her."
