California Man Charged in Death of Wife and Sister

A California man has been charged with the murder of his wife and sister.

Lance Anderson, 60,  was charged by prosecutors on Friday after authorities said he shot and killed his dementia-stricken wife at their home and his sister in a convalescent home.

Per ABC News Anderson faces two counts of murder, with circumstance allegations of multiple murders and intentional discharge of a firearm with great bodily injury. If convicted, he could face the death penalty.

He is currently being held without bail with the possibility of being arraigned later in the day. It is unknown at this time if he has a lawyer and no public defender has yet to be assigned.

Anderson’s wife has been identified as 68-year-old Bertha Maxine Anderson. Her cause of death was a single gunshot wound to the head after the shooting that occurred earlier this week in the couple’s Santa Clarita, California residence.

Authorities said Lance Anderson took a taxi on Wednesday from his home to the Country Villa Sheraton nursing facility where his 58-year-old sister resided. She was also shot in the head while she was in her bed.

After killing his sister, Anderson then put his small-caliber revolver on a night stand and surrendered himself after police arrived to the seen, Los Angeles police Lt. Paul Vernon said.

After family members learned of Nave’s death, they called the Los Angeles County deputies and asked for them to check on Anderson’s wife. There deputies found Bertha Anderson’s dead body in the couple’s town home they shared.

Family confirmed that Bertha had been suffering from dementia. Vernon describes the shootings as mercy killings.

“He unilaterally decided to kill two people for whatever seemed like a rational reason to him,” Vernon said. “But it isn’t right for those who want those people to live. He can’t make that decision.”
