Man Got Tired Of Changing Sick Wife’s Diapers, Kills Her

John Dewees Jr., 49, had been taking care of his wife, 45-year-old Anja Dewees, who suffered from liver disease due to her excessive drinking.

Dewees’ wife suffered from liver disease for four years. The suspect did all the cooking and cleaning, along with bathing her

On May 20, Dewees allegedly pushed his wife into a tub and punched her in the head before taking her to bed. The following morning, the suspect woke up to find his wife dead, then allegedly wrapped her body in plastic and duct tape to hide the smell of her decomposing body.

He was arrested two days later after allegedly confessing to a neighbor that he “killed his wife,” according to court records.


“He said he did it because he was tired of changing diapers every day,”

Dewees has now been placed on suicide watch after telling police he tried to slit his wrists so he could be with his wife in heaven.

At a court appearance last Tuesday, Dewees’ adult son told police that his father had been abusive to him and his mother for years, and that he witnessed his dad hitting his mother multiple times over the years, WFSB reported.

Dewees is being held on a $175,000 bond.
