Niceville - The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office have charged 76 year old Judson Wood with two counts of premeditated murder. OCSO investigators say Wood attacked his 68 year old wife Sharron and his 49 year old disabled son James while they were both sleeping in their bed.

He struck them both multiple times with a metal mallet. Judson told investigators that his own health is declining and had been thinking about "putting James out of his misery" for more than a month. He said James required continous care was becoming too difficult and didnt think anyone else would provide James what he needed. He also claimed that his wife was becoming hard to handle.

James and Sharron are currently in critical condition at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center. Physicians say that Sharron will need extensive facial reconstruction.
