Motivations Behind Compassionate Killing
Motivations Behind Compassionate Killing

AIR DATE: January 24, 2014

Last weekend, Kenneth Dresser killed his wife of 63 years. She would not, he said, want to live disabled in a hospital bed. His plan had been to kill her and then himself. But the gun jammed and he now finds himself charged with murder. Is there a better way to treat the depression that comes with long-term care for loved ones? What should we know about the warning signs for this kind of mental health problem?
