"Husband kills wife, but not himself, in a possible suicide pact"

Wow. This is just weird all around.

SAN ANTONIO-- The San Antonio Police Department made a gruesome discovery tonight at a home on the city's northeast side. Officers got the call at 7:25 p.m. and when they made it out to the 16400 block Spruce Leaf near Judson, the 59-year-old man at the home confessed to killing his wife.

The man told police that he and his 79-year-old wife had a suicide pact but after he killed her, he wasn't able to go through with killing himself. Police tell KENS 5 that the woman was stabbed multiple times and that a hammer was also used to kill the woman; the male did not appear to have any injuries.

According to Police [sic], the woman had been sick for a lengthy period of time and the couple did have mental health issues. Police have also been called to this particular home numerous times. During the search, two dozen cats were also found inside the home.

Whoever heard of a suicide pact gone wrong? With 24 cats on the side?
