A 92-year-old woman is behind bars after she fatally shot her son who wanted to put her in an assisted living facility.
According to reports, Anna Mae Blessing moved in with her 72-year-old son and his girlfriend about six months ago.
A discussion was had recently regarding Blessing being placed in an assisted living facility — something Blessing was not too keen on doing.
“From my understanding, she had thought about it for a few days because there was a dispute regarding her son wanting to put her in an assisted living home,” Maricopa County Sgt. Bryant Vanejas said.
So, on Monday, Blessing walked into her son’s bedroom with two handguns hidden in the pockets of her robe.
After telling her son she was tired of the way he treated her, Blessing pulled out one of the guns and shot him several times, killing him.
His girlfriend, who was in the room, managed to wrestle the gun out of Blessing’s hand and then knock the second gun out of Blessing’s hand when she pulled it out of her other pocket.
