311

A terrifying incident involving a fight over pancakes in Washington, DC, resulted in the arrest of an elderly man who was suspected of killing his wife. 

Steven Schwartz, 85, allegedly stabbed his wife, Sharron Schwartz, 81, following a dispute over the breakfast she had prepared at their home last Sunday.

The US Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia detailed that the argument erupted when Steven Schwartz refused to eat the pancakes his wife had made. This refusal escalated into a dreadful incident, with Schwartz purportedly stabbing his wife in the back, leading to her untimely death.

In response to a report of a stabbing at the Schwartz residence, Washington authorities were made aware of the alarming situation at around 3:40 pm. 

Upon arrival, they discovered Sharron Schwartz with severe injuries and Steven Schwartz, who had self-inflicted injuries. Both were rushed to a nearby hospital, where Sharron Schwartz tragically succumbed to her injuries.

In an unsettling revelation during the investigation, Steven Schwartz confessed to having an aversion to food and stated that an argument had erupted when his wife tried to make him eat.

Further insights into the couple’s life emerged during subsequent interviews. Steven Schwartz, still reeling from a stroke, revealed that he and his wife had shared a loving 40-year marriage. 

He even shared that he prayed the heinous act was a delusion, showcasing the apparent distress and mental anguish he was undergoing.

As this heart-wrenching tragedy unfolds, an attorney representing Schwartz was not available for immediate comment on the case.
