William Hager’s wife Carolyn was having a hard time living with her pain, so husband William shot her while she slept.

He then went to his kitchen, had a cup of coffee, then called his daughters to break the news, and later phoned 911, according to an affidavit WPTV acquired.

“I want to apologize I didn’t call earlier, I wanted to tell my kids what happened first,” detectives quoted him saying.

He’s now facing murder charges in the St. Lucie County Jail.
