Fat Wife Deadly
|Associated Press, Bridgeport|
|A 48-year-old Bridgeport man died Wednesday after his 500-pound wife fell
on top of him during a domestic squabble, police said, but they were still
trying to determine the exact cause of death yesterday.
Bridgeport police Capt. Leonard M. Cocco said Stanley Walker was pronounced dead at 7:42 p.m. Wednesday in Park City Hospital in Bridgeport about an hour after his wife, Vannie Walker, 47, contacted police.
Cocco said that Walker had also been struck several times in the head. He said autopsy was scheduled to be performed today at the state medical examiner's office in Farmington to determine the cause of death.
Cocco said the incident began shortly after 6 p.m. Wednesday when Walker began arguing with his wife. Vannie Walker fell on top of her husband shortly after she and her 13-year-old nephew and 12-year-old niece tried to restrain him, police said.
