LONDON, Kentucky (AP) — A U.S. man who says he killed his cancer-stricken wife at her request called police to confess minutes after the shooting and is charged with murder.
Ernest Chris Chumbley told a police dispatcher in Kentucky he shot his wife twice in the face Wednesday night. Chumbley later told media outlets from jail that she wanted her pain to end.
Chumbley cries throughout the 16-minute call to police and says his wife had an appointment with her cancer doctor Thursday morning. At one point, he asks the dispatcher if he can go see his wife's body in the bedroom, but he is told not to move.
The 48-year-old Chumbley's defense attorney, Kelly Ridings, says it is too early in the case to comment.
