Man admits killing dementia-suffering wife

A man has admitted to killing his dementia-suffering wife in a violent attack in their Bradford home.

Edward Small, 76, told Bradford Crown Court that he struck Sheila Small with a rolling pin and a walking stick when he “got angry and lost it” during an argument.

Small denies murdering Mrs Small, 73, at their address in Raymond Drive, West Bowling, in the early hours of 18 December.

He accepts that his unlawful violence resulted in her death but says that he did not intend to cause her really serious harm.

The trial continues.
