Rome, February 15 - The supreme Court of Cassation
said Thursday there could be no ethical attenuating
circumstances for a man who killed his wife because she was
suffering from advanced Alzheimer's. The top court upheld a
conviction of seven years and eight months for a pensioner who
killed his 88-year-old wife in Florence in 2014. For the supreme
justices, there is still not "a general positive appreciation"
for euthanasia in Italian society. They said that, on the
contrary, there are "wide schools of thought that contrast it",
and these were sufficient reasons for not granting the
attenuating circumstances.
