VIDEO: Sheriff: 86-year-old woman kills husband with a cane

SANTA ROSA COUNTY, Fla. (WKRG) —  An 86-year-old woman has been arrested in Florida for allegedly killing her husband with a cane.

On Saturday, January 5th, Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a medical emergency at a home on Jenny Circle in Pace, but the scene “quickly turned into a crime scene” according to deputies. 89-year-old Francis Lund was found laying on the front porch with blunt force trauma to the head. Deputies determined the weapon was a cane which was located at the scene.

86-year-old Ramona Maxine Lund, Francis’ spouse, was arrested and is being held on a $250 thousand bond.  Bill Eddins, State Attorney 1st Circuit, said in a press conference on Monday, “regarding her mental condition, it was clear from observation of her that she has some significant confusion.”
