New developments in the shooting death of a Bakersfield woman, Beverly Ziros.
On Tuesday, the District Attorney's office said it will not file charges against her husband, Andrew Ziros.
Police found the 66-year-old woman shot to death in her northwest Bakersfield home last month.
A hospice worker found Beverly shot, with Mr. Ziros sitting next to her with a gun.
Prosecutors say there is no doubt in their minds Andrew Ziros shot and killed his wife. However, they believe Mr. Ziros truly didn't know what he was doing.
"What's the likely outcome and what's the right thing to do in a case where we honestly believe that he was hallucinating at the time? And, again it's just extremely horrific, the entire incident is," said Andrea Kohler, Supervising Deputy District Attorney.
Andrew Ziros has terminal cancer and is in a care facility. Prosecutors say he is no threat to anyone there.
