Name: Sharron Ann Wood.
Died: April 20, 2018.
Age at death: 68.
Cause of death: Murder.
Location: Niceville, Florida, USA.
Disability: Poor health.
Sharron had a son named James David, who had cerebral palsy and needed round-the-clock care. When Sharron’s own health began to worsen, her husband decided that caring for David was too much of a burden and that Sharron had “become hard to handle”. As they slept in their beds, he bludgeoned her and David with a metal mallet.
Sharron and David survived the initial attack, and were both taken to a hospital and then a rehabilitation facility. Sharron had to have facial reconstruction. However, nearly three months after the attack, Sharron died of her injuries. David survived, though with bleeding on the brain.
Sharron was a retired child care director who had worked at a local elementary school for fifteen years as well as helping her son David.
Perpetrator: Judson Anthony Wood (Husband), charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder; declared incompetent to stand trial and hospitalized in a forensic mental hospital to restore competency.
