An 85-year-old man attempted to stab his wife to death and commit suicide by overdosing on pills in Zichron Ya’acov on Saturday, police said.

The man reportedly carried out the acts in order to “spare his wife” who is suffering from a disease, police added.

Before the attempted killing-suicide, the man sent an e-mail to his son in Turkey and detailed his plans to end their lives. The son immediately alerted police, who arrived on the scene and contacted paramedics.
