Police: Man killed wife in 1983, made it appear suicide


A Pennsylvania man was charged with fatally beating his wife more than 30 years ago, then slashing her wrists to make it appear she killed herself, prosecutors announced Tuesday. A coroner at the time ruled Rodgers’ death a homicide, but no arrest was made. He claimed she was depressed about her job at a state park and was suicidal, according to a grand jury report. The body looked like it had been dragged there and a knife was found nearby, its sheath bearing the name “Carl.” according to the grand jury. He was the only individual with the motive to make her death appear to be a suicide,” the grand jury said.
