Death by Zimmer frame

A 95-year-old man brutally murdered a fellow care-home resident in Spain by beating him to death with his Zimmer frame.

The elderly man entered the room of 88-year-old Restituto Jiménez Belzuz in the middle of the night and used the frame as a weapon - beating him over the head with it - claiming afterwards that he could not remember carrying out the attack.

Marian Zozaya, a journalist with newspaper Diário de Notícias, said: "The residents don't believe they had an argument before the attack. They say the man may have been jealous, but afterwards he said he could not remember anything about the attack."
