Former Wrestling Champion Looking At Murder Charge

I've been a big wrestling fan since I was a kid so this story troubles me. Minneapolis police are debating whether or not to charge fromer wrestling champion Verne Gagne, who suffers from Alzheimer's Disease with the murder of fellow nursing home patient Ben Goodman. Goodman was killed when Gagne threw him to the floor. Gagne says he does not remember the altercation at all. Goodman's own family even says although they are extremely upset over the loss they are not adamant on pressing charges. Is there really a question of whether or not you should convict this man? Murderers plead temporary insanity all the time yet we question whether or not to convict a man in his 90's who suffers from Alzheimer's? Come on now..
