AN elderly man is believed to have smothered his sick wife in a mercy killing pact.
Margaret Smith, 81, was bedridden with multiple sclerosis and arthritis.
She lived with her husband, Robert, 71, at their semi-detached home in Orpington, Kent.
A neighbour said: "They were a very loving couple."
A 71-year-old man will appear at Bromley Magistrates Court today charged
with her murder.
