MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A 76-year-old Milwaukee County man has pleaded not guilty to shooting his blind wife of 56 years, who he said had been nagging him for weeks.

Online court records say Jack Lang waived his preliminary hearing Monday. He pleaded not guilty to first-degree intentional homicide.

Prosecutors say the Oak Creek man called 911 on April 16 to say he'd just shot his wife in the face. Police found June Lang dead near the bed.

Jack Lang told investigators she wouldn't stop nagging him, and even though he loved her, he'd had enough.

He says he got his .22 caliber gun and warned her he was holding it inches from her head but she didn't believe him.

Lang's defense attorney, Michael F. Hart, declined to comment while the case was ongoing.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A 76-year-old Milwaukee County man has told investigators he shot his blind wife of 56 years because she'd been nagging him for three weeks.

Prosecutors charged Jack Lang of Oak Creek with first-degree intentional homicide Thursday.

Authorities say Lang called 911 on Wednesday to say he'd just shot his wife in the face. Police found June Lang dead near the bed.

Jack Lang told investigators she nagged him and wouldn't shut up, and even though he loved her he'd had enough. He says she criticized him for not being able to help as much with housework.

He says he got his .22 caliber gun and warned her he was holding it inches from her head but she didn't believe him.

Online court records didn't immediately list a defense attorney.
