(hennemusic) Founding Eagles member Randy Meisner spent his 70th birthday on Tuesday in a psych ward for threatening suicide after his wife accidentally shot herself in the couple's California home on Sunday.

The New York Daily News reports Meisner was hospitalized hours after the death of his second wife, Lana, from a single gunshot wound that occurred while she was moving a rifle out of a closet and something inside the gun case shifted and hit the trigger, causing the gun to discharge.

The former Eagle was in another part of the house when the gun went off, police said. The bassist was placed under a 72-hour hold, which could end Wednesday night or be extended an additional two weeks, according to attorney Troy L. Martin.

"He threatened to kill himself," said L. Martin. "He was very distraught. I can't imagine what it's going to be like for him to return to the house." Read more here.
