My ex-SIL is dying of metastisized boned cancer, same as OBG had. Hospice has been involved for some time, as she has been living at home (hospice = less than 6 months to live). Her condition has deteriorated rapidly of late, and yesterday she was put in the hospital to drain excess fluid out of her abdomen.

The day before, her husband, possibly the biggest piece of excrement in existence, beat her badly with his cane. Can you imagine a guy beating up a dying old woman??? Her daughter was there and had to call 911 to get him stopped.

SIL refused to press charges AGAIN, as when she has done so in the past, as soon as he gets out of jail, he comes back and beats her up again for having her arrested.

Well, she's not coming out of the hospital. The doctors are putting her in the terminal cancer ward.

If I were her, I would have shot the SOB, very slowly, one body part at a time... Only when the police were breaking down the door would I let him have the coup d' grace. She wouldn't live long enough to see a trial.

I hope that nasty, ugly maggot dies painfully, and I hope it takes him a long time.

Oh, and he also gets her house and her insurance.

I will never understand people, EVER!

I'm sorry, Sue. Maybe, one day, he'll get his.

Why do you say he gets the house and her insurance? If she is still alive, she should be able to draft a new will and change the beneficiaries on her life insurance. Of course, if she wants her husband to get the house and benefits, that's the end of the story.

Very sorry to hear about the situation. I understand how incredibly frustrating it can be to watch such things occur and be unable to do anything. BTDT. :-(

One can only hope that in the end, everyone must answer for their actions. Unfortunately, that's cold comfort for those who have to deal with them or suffer because of them in the real world.

How old are these people - is it possible he's suffering from dementia?

And - I think the daughter could start legal action for the assault.

I know in some states, it's NOT an option - in NY for instance, 1/3rd of the house MUST go to the spouce - and I know there are some laws RE Life Insurance that the spouce has to get some percentage (think 1/2) unless the spouce signs off that they don't want it

If there was a witness to the assault the victim doesn't have to "press charges", if the witness is willing to swear out an affidavit the police can arrest him with or without the cooperation of the victim. Most if not all states have spousal abuse laws that take the burden of "pressing charges" out of the equation, the state prosecutes on behalf of the victim whether the victim wants them to or not.

Having said that, the karmic debt that this guy is building up is unbelievable, don't stoop to his level and seek revenge. I would make sure that the hospital/hospice is made aware of his actions as they can ban him from the premises regardless of his relationship to your SIL.
