Criminal Justice Quote: Couple Intentionally Step Into Path of Freight Train

     New York State Police say the deaths of a couple standing together in front of a freight train was murder-suicide, but investigators can't say when Earl Myatt Jr. decided to drive his beloved wife of 42 years to the railroad crossing.

     Relatives have said Myatt became despondent after his wife, Mary, suffered a brain aneurism in January 2014 that left her with the mental capacity of a toddler. Troopers said Earl Myatt called one of his sons and apologized two minutes before stepping with his wife onto the tracks into the path of an oncoming CSX Railroad freight train on Sunday, April 26, 2014.

     Police said video showed them waiting on the tracks before they were hit and killed. A suicide note was found in Myatt's car.
