Elderly man faces murder charge after slaying wife over pancakes


A 85-year-old man is charged with the murder of his 81-year-old spouse in D.C. Allegedly.
The dispute erupted over a meal, leading to a fatal stabbing. Both were rushed to the hospital, where the wife, Sharon Schwartz, sadly succumbed to her injuries.
The preliminary investigation indicates that Steven Schwartz had motive to harm his wife. Despite his not-guilty plea in a recent virtual court appearance, a judge has ordered him held without bond until the preliminary hearing on January 2, 2024.
While the motive behind the tragedy remains undisclosed by the authorities, a statement from the Department of Justice D.C. office suggests that the conflict arose from a disagreement over the pancakes she had prepared.
