An 86-year-old man was behind bars Wednesday on suspicion of killing another octogenarian in a Mission Viejo home.

William Wiley was booked on suspicion of murder, according to Carrie Braun, a sheriff’s spokeswoman. The name of the victim was not immediately released.

Deputies were called to a residence in the 28000 block of Via Arriaga about 1 p.m. Tuesday regarding the death of the woman, Braun said.

Wiley lived with the victim, Braun said. Wiley’s family members said he has been diagnosed with dementia, she added.
