Man rushed to hospital after allegedly killing wife and attempting suicide

LAKESIDE (CNS) – A Lakeside man was rushed to the hospital early Monday, after he allegedly killed his wife and attempted to kill himself by inhaling carbon monoxide, a sheriff's lieutenant said.

A woman called 911 about 4:45 a.m. to report that she had just received an email from her brother-in-law stating that he had killed his wife and was about to take his own life, according to San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Jim Duffy.

Deputies went to the man's home in the 10300 block of New Bedford Court in Lakeside and found him in a closed room with a portable generator, Duffy said, noting that the man was taken to a hospital. The extent of his medical condition was not immediately released.

Deputies also found a woman in the house who appeared dead, according to Duffy.
