A .357 Magnum was found on the scene.

Phillyburbs.com reports that, during the two days Mr. Rosa’s body remained in the home, Mrs. Rosa prepared food for him and even checked on him when he didn’t show up for dinner.

Mrs. Rosa’s children told NBC 10 that their mother suffers from dementia and she snapped after suffering years of abuse from her husband. “He drove her insane,” daughter Rosetta Rosa told the TV station. “He drove her to the point where she picked up the gun and shot him.”

“I understand why my mama did it,” Valpa Rosa Jr. said.

In addition to dementia, the daughter says her mother has a physical disability and “Alzheimer’s disease, leading her children to taking two full days before they reported their father’s death to police,” according to NBC 10.

Mrs. Rosa is free on $150,000 bail as she awaits arraignment.
