Man accused of murder after wife dies when taken off support

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Pima County authorities say a Tucson-area man is now accused of murder following the death of his wife after she was taken off life support.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department says 62-year-old George A. Majewski was booked Tuesday on suspicion of first-degree murder in the death of 50-year-old Kerman Dubash.

She was taken off life support Monday night.

Majewski was originally jailed and booked on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder. He was arrested April 12 after his wife was found unresponsive at their home.

It could not be immediately determined whether Majewski has an attorney.
