The great understanding between an American couple has reached a killing juncture! So what’s the story?
In a strange incident that occurred in the US state of Florida, a woman carried out the request of her sick husband and killed him in the hospital by firing squad.
The New York Times quoted US authorities as saying that Jerry Gilland, 77, a terminally ill man, made an agreement with his wife about three weeks ago that if his failing health did not improve, he would want his wife, Ellen Gilland. 76-year-old, to kill him.”
His health continued to deteriorate, and just before 11:30 a.m. Saturday local time, Ms. Gylland brought a gun to AdventHealth in Daytona Beach, Fla., went to her husband’s room on the 11th floor and shot him in the head, according to police.-
“She had planned to shoot herself, too, but in the end, she just couldn’t do it,” said Daytona Beach Police Chief Jacare Young.--
He continued, “Gylland locked herself in the room and refused to drop the gun when the police arrived.”
After a confrontation that lasted for hours between the police and the woman, the police managed to detain her, and Young said, “Even after the shooting, she never tried to get up and leave (…) and everything was confined to the room. The patients and staff in the hospital were not threatened.”
He noted that “Gilliland could face a charge of first-degree murder.” Gilland was transferred to the Volusia County Jail Saturday afternoon.
Young concluded, “She is very sad. This is clearly a difficult situation, and Ms. Gilliland was in a depressed state.”
