Murder-suicide by train
ONEIDA, NEW YORK- A couple that stood together to be hit by an on-coming train was ruled a murder-suicide by police in New York.
Police say Earl Myatt drove his wife of 42 years to a railroad crossing and they stood together to be hit by a CSX train.
A suicide note was found in Myatt's car.
Surveillance video shows them waiting on the tracks before they were hit.
Relatives say Myatt became despondent after his beloved wife, Mary, suffered a brain aneurysm four months ago that left her with the mental capacity of a small child.
Authorities say he called one of his sons to apologize two-minutes before he stepped with his wife onto the tracks.
