She wanted to end her son’s life and her own. A senior citizen (87) had to answer for attempted manslaughter before the Uster District Court. This is reported by the “Tagesanzeiger”.
According to the indictment, the lady brought her disabled son (54) home from the home in January last year. There she mixed 26 tablets of a hypnotic into the vanilla pudding and gave him some to eat. She herself took a few spoonfuls. Suddenly doubting the effectiveness of the pills, she mixed more medication into the pudding.
But the two just fell asleep. When the son did not return to the home, those responsible went looking for him and found him with his mother. The son was taken to the intensive care unit at Zurich University Hospital for two days to be monitored, where the doctors determined the medication administered.
She took care of her son for years
The court sentenced the woman to a suspended prison sentence. She doesn’t have to go to jail. In addition, there are the legal costs and fees of around 9,500 francs. The reason for the judgment is the circumstances of the fact.
The elderly woman had explained that she had taken care of her son for years. As she got older, she became weaker and worried about what would happen to her son if she died before him. That’s why the idea matured in her to put an end to both lives.
