LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Police say a Lawrence man charged with fatally shooting his 61-year-old wife did so because of her "ongoing health concerns."

The Lawrence Journal-World (http://bit.ly/1dOyUCm ) reports that 67-year-old Larry L. Hopkins appeared Wednesday via video from the Douglas County to be charged. He faces one count of first-degree murder in Tuesday's killing of Margaret Hopkins.

District Court Judge James George set bond at $150,000 and asked Hopkins if he had anything to say. Hopkins responded that even if he was released on his own recognizance, he had no place to go.

A statement that prosecutors released Wednesday provided no details about the health issues that police allege played a role in the shooting.

If convicted, Hopkins faces a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole for 25 years.
