An 83-year-old man was charged with second-degree murder Tuesday in what Gatineau police are calling a domestic dispute.
Domenico Torrente was arrested outside his home Monday night at 52 Rivermeade St. in the Aylmer region. Police said he called 911 at 7 p.m. Monday to report his wife’s death. His wife, Santina Larosa, 76, succumbed to gunshot wounds, police said. An autopsy is being conducted in Montreal.
Gatineau police spokesperson Pierre Lanthier said Torrente did not suffer any injuries in the incident, but was brought to hospital after he complained of not feeling well. Torrente will be handed over to authorities after he is released from hospital Lanthier said.
