Family members say 79-year-old charged with murdering wife suffers from Alzheimer’s disease

Last week a 79-year-old was charged with murdering his wife in the garage of their Sodus home.

Now, some family friends are contending that Jesse Zeck, who is charged with second-degree murder suffers from Alzheimers.

Jason Zeck, Jesse’s son, told News10NBC that his family was ‘shocked’ by the allegations, and noted that his father has Alzheimer’s disease.


Zeck had gone to a neighbor’s home to report the incident. That neighbor’s home was an off-duty deputy. Sandy was found beaten to death with a claw hammer.

He was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s more than a year ago. Agitation, physical aggression, unpredictable anger and aggression are all symptoms of Alzheimer’s.

Friends of the 79-year-old accused of murder say he would not have done it while he was healthy.
