    Default Man kisses ailing wife, hurls her from balcony

    KANSAS CITY, Missouri (AP) -- A man threw his seriously ill wife four stories to her death because he could no longer afford to pay for her medical care, prosecutors said in charging him with second-degree murder.

    According to court documents filed Wednesday in Jackson County Circuit Court, Stanley Reimer walked his wife to the balcony of their apartment and kissed her before throwing her over.

    The body of Criste Reimer, 47, was found Tuesday night outside the apartment building, near the upscale Country Club Plaza shopping district.

    Stanley Reimer, 51, was charged Wednesday. He remained jailed on $250,000 bond and was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday.

    In the probable cause statement filed with the charges, police said Reimer was desperate because he could not pay the bills for his wife's treatment for neurological problems and uterine cancer.

    Investigators said that Reimer was in the apartment when they arrived. He told them, "She didn't jump," but did not elaborate, they said.

    Criste Reimer's caregiver told police she could barely walk and would not have been able to climb over the railing of the balcony, according to the probable cause statement.

    Reimer's alleged motive emerged after several more hours of questioning, police said.

    According to Jackson County Probate Court records, Criste Reimer had been in ill health for several years. Her weight had fallen to 75 pounds and she was partly blind.

    According to the court records, she had no health insurance to pay for medical bills that ranged from $700 to $800 per week.

    The Probate Court documents were filed in April, when Stanley Reimer petitioned to be allowed to sell personal property his wife owned in Wheeler County, Texas, for $20,000.

    The documents listed her assets at approximately $6,700, with monthly income of $725 from oil royalties and Supplemental Security Income.

    It was not immediately known if Stanley Reimer had an attorney.

    It sounds like this may have been an assisted suicide. Still, I could never, never, ever do this to my wife.

    Ford, I agree with you.

    What a sad story. I really don't know how this guy could have gone through with this horrible thing.

    What I don't understand is why the guy admitted throwing her over the edge. Tell the cops she jumped because she couldn't stand the pain anymore. Pretty difficult to prove otherwise unless she was physically incapable of standing on her own.

    Not only is this guy crazy, but he's stupid too.

    Conscience, maybe? Wonder if she left behind a note?

    However, if I was going to have someone dump me over a railing, I'd hope they'd find a place a bit higher than 4 stories. Still possible to survive a fall like that and then be in a great deal more pain than you were to start with...

    Oh, it has nothing to do with this mans personal inadequacies, like being a provider for his wife and insuring her? Blame privatized health care, yeah that's it. Nationalized healthcare, just what we need, to have the government take another 500 dollars a month out to pay for healthcare to illegal immigrants and hypochondriacts and other nutjobs.

    I'm sure you just pulled that "500 dollars a month" figure out of your ass, based on absolutely nothing. But would you rather pay 500 bucks a month, or 800 dollars a week?

    Can you afford $3,200 a month for medical bills? I doubt your employer (McDonalds) would cover that.

    From the report :- "Criste Reimer's caregiver told police she could barely walk and would not have been able to climb over the railing of the balcony, according to the probable cause statement."

    BUt anyways, seems a rather barbaric way to deal with it. Wonder if SHE realised what was going to happen or he just tossed her overboard like a bucket of fish scraps?

    Here's a theory...albeit a weird one....

    What if the woman had a life insurance policy which would have paid off her meidcal expenses? Obviously no policy would pay in the event of a suicide, nor would they pay a husband who killed her. But what if the beneficiary was a third party, a blood relative of the deceased?

    If her condition was terminal, then the death might have been a mutual decision, especially if the outcome would ensure that the bills were paid.

    A bizarre and tragic situation in either case, but oddly logical if you think about it.
