A 76-year-old man accused of shooting his cancer-stricken wife to death as she lay suffering in the hospital was briefly released from jail Friday to attend her funeral. Clutching the hands of his sons, Vernal "Bob" Ohlrich followed his wife's coffin into St. Peter Lutheran Church, where Phyllis Ohlrich, a 74-year-old Sunday school teacher, once sang in the choir. Ohlrich's wife was shot once in the head Tuesday.

On the last night of his life, Scott Catenacci left his job at the Krispy Kreme doughnut shop, climbed into his car and drove through the darkness toward the Iowa border. He was heading to meet some friends in a park, intent on selling his laptop computer. Those friends, authorities say, were waiting to murder him. One week earlier, Catenacci and three of those friends had experimented with partner-swapping sex--"basically a group orgy," one later recalled.
