LAKEWOOD, Colo. - Lakewood police have arrested the 73-year-old wife of an 83-year-old man who was severely beaten in his home and later died.
Police said they responded to a call of a domestic dispute in on W. Warren Drive and S. Moore Court just before 11 a.m. Wednesday.
Upon arrival, they found Carol Weigum outside the house and found her husband, Wallace "Wally" Weigum inside the house. He was rushed to a local hospital where he died later that afternoon.
An investigation revealed the husband died from blunt force trauma to the head, police said.
Carol Weigum was arrested at the house for investigation of first-degree murder. Police said detectives don't believe the man's death was related to any sort of assisted suicide.
