Murder suspect, 88, unfit to plead

An 88-year-old man battered his 72-year-old wife to death with a hammer then buried her under concrete in their cellar, a court was told. Andrzej Korecki, from Derby, the oldest man ever to be charged with murder in Britain, was found unfit to plead by the jury at Nottingham Crown Court after they were told that he suffers from senile dementia. The judge made an order committing him to a special hospital.
