LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Police in Lexington have charged an 88-year-old man with shooting and killing his 85-year-old wife.

Neighbors heard a single shot Saturday afternoon from the home of John Blevins. The Fayette County Coroner's Office says they found his wife, Elizabeth Blevins, with a single gunshot wound.

Neighbor Brian Jones says police handcuffed John Blevins and walked him down a sidewalk a short time later.

Police say John Blevins may suffer from a form of dementia.

Jail records did not list an attorney for Blevins.
