Default Man jailed after throwing TV remote at wife, causing fatal brain haemorrhage

Quote:
A man has been jailed for three years after killing his wife by throwing a TV remote control at her.

In a freak accident, the 114g device struck a weak spot on her head, causing bleeding on the brain.

Doctors later found that Gloria Laguna, a former US diplomat, had no idea she had a congenital weakness around her vertebral artery.

A jury at the Old Bailey heard that the 48-year-old was struck behind the ear, causing a haemorrhage.

Only two years earlier she had given up her career to marry husband Paul Harvey and move to Britain.

In sentencing, Judge Giles Forrester said Harvey, who has two previous convictions for violence — including breaking a policeman's nose — and criminal damage, had a problem with his temper. This was exacerbated by the fact that both he and his wife had been drinking and taking cocaine on the night she died.

He said: “In any view you were taking a significant risk of injuring her, although — as the medical evidence makes clear — the risk was greater than anybody could have anticipated. This has been described as an egg shell skull case'.”

Mr Harvey, 46, rang 999 in tears and tried deparately to save his wife but she died later in hospital.

Harvey, an international electrical installation inspector of Warren Street, had pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

Hopefully this event forces that guy to work on his anger issues.

Really tragic how it happened.

I remember one event where somebody slipped the wiimote, and it crashed onto a PS3. Needless to say, the PS3 was destroyed.
