Prosecutors in New Jersey say a 100-year-old man was behind a grisly murder-suicide this weekend.

According to the AP, centenarian Michael Juskin still had the strength to murder his 88-year-old wife, Rosalia, with an ax before killing himself with a knife.

Friends tell the news outlet there was a "history of domestic issues" in the marriage, and although one neighbor says she often saw the couple "putzing around outside," another tells CBS Juskin had some mental issues.

They were reportedly discovered Monday by the couple's son.
