PHOENIX, Arizona -- A 92-year-old woman is charged with murder after deputies say she fatally shot her own son because she thought he wanted to move her to an assisted living facility.
The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says Anna Mae Blessing had lived with her 72-year-old son Thomas and his girlfriend at the girlfriend's condo for the last six months.
Court records show she believed her son and his girlfriend were talking about putting her in the facility because she had become "difficult to deal with."
According to detectives, Blessing hid two handguns in the pockets of her robe and confronted her son in his room Monday morning.

Oh the irony!
Theyll put granny in one. Its called a prison.
At least she had a reason.
Just call it a late term abortion and let her go.
now she’s gonna end up in the gray bar assisted living facility ...
The assisted living place shes going to now might not be what was originally intended.
Like a nursing home.... with bars.
Actually the gray bar assisted living facility is probably better than most voluntary assisted living facilities. All paid for by your tax dollars.
But it’ll be paid for by the taxpayers, not the family. If she’s even convicted.
sounds like Sonny was correct...she definitely was difficult to deal with...
She tried to kill the GF, too. The GF wrestled away the first gun, then granny pulled out her backup. The GF got that one, too.
A 72 year-old son?
I was expecting him to be in his mid-50s.
Reminds me of a story (true story) that is now probably about 20 years old. A man in his 80s or 90s shot and killed his wife of many years. He told the police he could no longer take her nagging.
“Actually the gray bar assisted living facility is probably better than most voluntary assisted living facilities.”
i was thinking the same thing ...
And it sounds like he’s not going to get his hands on her money after all. Should have just waited for her to die.
Karma, it’s what’s for *dinner.
*now with a side dish of lead.
“When detectives asked Blessing what she thinks should happen to her ‘she replied she should be ‘put to sleep’ as a result of her actions.”
And a quite a pistol
What’s that Olde saying “Don’t pick a fight with an Olde Man, he may just kill you”. That will now be amended to add, Olde Woman.
Never pick a fight with grandma and mind yer own business.
