Oregon Man Kills Wife, Self

Police say an Oregon City man shot and killed his terminally ill wife Tuesday before committing suicide.  Authorities say James Michael Hamel, 56, shot his wife, Rhonda Hamel, 66, then turned the gun on himself. Officials say Rhonda Hamel had been battling cancer for years and had exhausted all conventional treatments before turning to more "extreme lengths" in an effort to beat the disease, to no avail. The couple moved to Oregon City from Texas in 1990.
