Former WWE Wrestler Arrested For Wife's Shooting Death

(Portland, OR) -- A former professional wrestler is accused of killing his wife in Portland's Lents neighborhood. Police say 70-year-old William Haynes, better known by his ring name Billy Jack Haynes, shot his 85-year-old wife Janette Becraft last week and then barricaded himself inside their home. He surrendered to police after about two hours and was taken to a hospital for an unidentified medical condition that police say is not related to the homicide. Police say it could be many days before he's released from the hospital. Haynes wrestled for the WWE from 1986 to 1988 and was known for his feuds with Randy "Macho Man" Savage and Hercules Hernandez.
