Bond was set today at 1-million dollars for the Akron man charged with shooting his wife in her hospital bed late Saturday night. 66-year-old John Wise appeared perplexed in court today, asking the judge whether his wife is indeed dead. 65-year-old Barbara Wise died late Sunday night, and her husband is charged with aggravated attempted murder. Akron police say it may have been a mercy killing. A hospital spokesperson says privacy laws prevent the release of details as to why Barbara Wise had been admitted to the intensive care unit a few days earlier.
