Los Angeles police say a 60-year-old man has been booked for investigation of murder in the shootings of his dementia-stricken wife and his sister, who was in a vegetative state at a nursing home.
Lt. Paul Vernon says the man surrendered to officers at the Country Villa Sheraton nursing facility in the North Hills area of Los Angeles.
He says the sister, who was shot in the head, was identified as 58-year-old Lisa Nave, who'd been in a vegetative state for several years.
Deputies found the wife's body at a home in the Canyon Country area of Santa Clarita.
Vernon characterized the shootings as "apparent mercy killings."
