A 78-year-old man was beaten to death and his wife was critically injured in an apparent attack today at their Rancho Cordova home.

Sacramento County sheriff's deputies responded to a call from a neighbor who checked on the couple around 11 a.m. Sunday in their mobile home in the 2900 block of Routier Road, officials said.

Sheriff's Sgt. Lisa Bowman said the woman, who has Alzheimer's disease, was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. Bowman, a sheriff's spokeswoman, did not say if the attack was the result of a break-in.

Although officials did not immediately release the couple's names, a relative at the scene identified the couple as Mel and Jean Bain.
