TYLER, Texas (AP) - A retired East Texas dentist says he regrets fatally shooting his wife of 26 years.
Dr. Bobby Nichols told The Associated Press on Friday that he misses and loved his wife. He said, "We just got in a fight and I screwed up and killed her with a gun."
Tyler police arrested the 75-year-old and charged him with the June 29 death of 71-year-old Rosiland Nichols. He's charged with murder and free on $750,000 bond.
Nichols said he's never been in trouble, but after a few drinks with his buddies he came home and his wife began nagging him.
Nichols said he doesn't really "remember what happened" before the shooting.
He said it was "almost like blacking out," so he had hoped it was only a dream.
