An 85-year-old woman was allegedly beaten to death by her 84-year-old husband inside their Montgomery County home Tuesday. Police say Bart Seltmann used a candle holder to kill his wife, Margaret, during an apparent argument over a veterinarian's bill for the couple's cat. Bart's brother, Ron, lives next door and says Bart had recently been diagnosed with dementia and has changed. "Bart became very volatile and very upset. That's hard to see with your brother," Seltmann says. When police arrived at the Seltmann's Lower Pottsgrove Township home, they found Margaret dead on the kitchen floor and Bart covered in blood. Police say Bart initially told the 911 operator his wife was dead, that someone beat Margaret and ransacked their home. However they say Bart later told investigators the couple was fighting over vet bills for their cat when Margaret grabbed a knife and said she was going to kill him. Bart says he grabbed a chair, pushed Margaret to the floor, and then beat her with a candleholder.

Pennsylvania is tweaking its mail-in ballots for the 2024 primary election. Gov. Josh Shapiro's administration hopes the changes will decrease confusion and reduce the number of rejected ballots. Among the changes are revised instruction sheets; coloring to make it easier to identify the inner and outer envelopes; a pre-filled '20' at the beginning of the year on the outer envelope as a reminder to fill in the current date in that field; and coloring on the return envelope to highlight fields that a voter must complete. According to the state, counties rejected about 17,000 mail-in ballots in this year's primary, more than two-thirds of which were rejected for arriving too late or for failing to have a date.

New Jersey's light-hearted holiday traffic signs are being brought back this season. In the past, the signs carried message like, "Only Rudolph should be lit. Drive high, get DWI."
