SHERMAN OAKS—Burton Levin, an 88-year-old man, allegedly killed his 85-year-old wife and then himself at their Sherman Oaks home. According to police officials, Levin contacted a family member around 4:00 a.m. Tuesday, April 23, and told them he had given his wife a lethal dose of medication.
Burton Levin called his family explaining he gave his wife an overdose of medication.
Officials arrived at the home the couple shared and found Levin in the backyard, dead as a result of a self-inflicted gun-shot wound, and his wife’s body inside the home. No signs of trauma were apparent on her body.
According to reports, a possible motive for the murders is the couple's hopelessness because of their declining health conditions.
