Woman, 92, refuses assisted living facility, shoots and kills son

Anna Mae Blessing, who is charged with murder, contemplated her son's intentions to put her into care for days, according to court documents.

She armed herself with two pistols which she concealed in the pockets of her robe before confronting her son in his bedroom.

After an argument, Blessing fired several rounds at her son and killed him, authorities said.

The girlfriend managed to knock this one out of Blessing's hands, too, before escaping and calling the sheriff's office.

Ms Blessing was sitting in a reclining chair in her bedroom when she was taken into custody, after she refused to leave the house in suburban Phoenix, according to court records. He was struck multiple times, including in the neck and jaw, and died at the scene. The girlfriend was also able to "dislodge" the second firearm after Blessing produced it, according to the police release.

Despite her age, Blessing is some way off becoming the oldest murderer in American history.

Blessing allegedly told cops that she had bought one of the guns in the late 1970s, and that the other was given to her by her husband.

'It is always concerning when domestic issues escalate to violence or tragic outcomes, ' Penzone told KSAZ-TV.

She then pulled out the gun and opened fire, killing her son - who has not been named, police said.

She has been charged with first degree murder, aggravated assault and kidnapping. "They are often isolated and neither predictable nor preventable". She is due back in court July 10. She's being held on a $500,000 cash-only bond.

A preliminary hearing for Anna Mae Blessing is scheduled within the next few weeks.

When asked what she thinks should happen to her, Blessing said she should be "put to sleep", the document said.

Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies received a 911 call Monday from a Fountain Hills woman reporting a shooting death in her condo.
