Wife beaten by husband of 63 years NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — Police said an 85-year-old man chased his 81-year-old wife out of their house Thursday morning and then beat her and pounded her head onto the concrete. Frank D'Avolio has pleaded innocent innocent to second-degree assault and is under guard while undergoing psychiatric psychiatric evaluation at the Erie County County Medical Center in Buffalo, police spokesman Tim Burden said. His wife of 63 years, Agatha D'Avolio, suffered severe head and facial injuries and was listed in critical condition in Erie County Medical Center's intensive care unit Thursday night. Burden said Mrs. D'Avolio was "assaulted by her husband in an alley ... behind their house. I guess he chased her out of the house."
