This poor man died of a broken heart as a result of the murder of his wife and best friend.

Hang that animal.

The surviving victim from last weeks brutal home invasion and beating is out of the hospital.

90-year-old Bob Strait is home with family members.

He suffered serious injuries during the incident, but his wife Nancy died.

Family members say Bob Strait is recovering physically, but emotionally his wounds are deep and he says he never wants to go back to the home he and his wife shared for more than 40 years.

"When I was holding his hand you could tell he was shaking on the inside, he was scared and when we asked him yesterday if he was ready to go home, he thought he was going home," said Strait's daughter, Lanora.

The couple was ambushed and robbed last week in their north Tulsa home.

Police have one suspect in custody, 21 year old Tyrone Woodfork, he's facing 1st degree murder charges among others.

The result of the attack left Bob Strait with a broken jaw, internal bleeding and bb gun wounds. His wife Nancy didn't survive her injuries.

"After he found out she was gone, we brought her in to him, and turned her to where he couldn't see her bad side and he held her hand for quite awhile and all he could say was I loved that old woman, I loved that old woman for so long," said Lanora.

The couple had been married for more than 65 years and Lanora doesn't know if her dad will be able to survive much longer without his soul mate.
