Man, 78, kills 74-year-old wife with hammer over alleged unfaithfulness

Published

on

Police have arrested a Washington state resident for allegedly killing his wife of 53 years by hitting her with a hammer because he suspected her of cheating.

Newsmen learnt that the 78-year-old suspect identified as James Flora was booked into the Pierce County Jail on Monday, August 3 on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of his spouse, identified as 74-year-old Ella Joyce Flora.

James Flora had walked into Tacoma General Hospital and told staff that he had choked his wife during a fight at their home.

Officers with the University Place Police Department responded to the Flora family’s home in the 5600 blocks of 61st Avenue West to perform a welfare check on the wife after the husband’s statement.

When officers rang the doorbell, no one answered, so they gained entry into the house through an open window. Inside, they found the 74-year-old victim dead.

An autopsy performed by the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office determined that the victim’s cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head.

Investigators said that James repeatedly struck his wife with a hammer and then put plastic wrap on her mouth and nose until she stopped breathing.

According to charging documents cited by Tacoma News Tribune, the couple had a volatile relationship and their neighbours reported often hearing screams coming from their house, including last Sunday.

James claimed his wife had been cheating on him for years and he knew about it.

On Sunday night, August 2, the couple got into an argument after Ella allegedly sneezed into her husband’s dinner.

The pair eventually walked away from the fight, and James fell asleep in a chair.

James told police that he woke up to find Ella trying to cut his dialysis tube and slit his wrist, inflicting two cuts.

James said he went to the bathroom to tend to his wounds and returned brandishing a hammer, which he allegedly used to attack his wife.

“He continued to strike her with the hammer and said that he could not stop,” the court filings alleged. “When asked why he was hitting his wife with the hammer, he stated that it was because his wife was a ‘ho’.”

In an effort to muffle her screams, James said he put plastic wrap on her face.

One of their daughters, Patrice Flora, wrote on Facebook of her mother’s killing:

“How can you have 53 years of marriage and kill them like a wild animal!! I pray the hell you put my mother through in her final minutes you will experience everyday until you die!!”
