An Ohio man is set to be arraigned on a charge that he shot his wife in a hospital intensive care unit.

Authorities say 65-year-old Barbara Wise was declared brain dead at Akron General Medical Center Sunday night.

Akron police say 66-year-old John Wise of Massillon entered his wife's room Saturday and shot her while standing at her bedside. He'll be arraigned Monday.

Capt. Dan Zampelli says that the shooting may have been an attempted mercy killing.

Zampelli says "it seems to be slanting that way. He wanted to take away her suffering."
