Elderly man charged with grisly murder of his wife

79-year-old may have eaten his wife’s flesh

WESTBOROUGH - On a sunny afternoon this week, Yening Zhou entered his parents’ apartment to check in on them, as he did every day at the same time. His mother, Yuee Zhou, had recently confided in him that she was concerned about her husband’s behavior.

Although he had not been clinically diagnosed with dementia, Jieming Liu, shaky and frail at 79, exhibited the symptoms, and family members were convinced he was afflicted by the disease. In November, Liu and his wife left their life in Hunan Province in China and moved to a small apartment in Shrewsbury, so their son, who lives nearby, could routinely look in on them.
