Origins: Making no claims as to this story's veracity, I merely present it as found in a 1984 newspaper:
Kay Weaver, 36, sat on her husband Kenneth, 41, for five to ten minutes in their rural home in nearby Elizabethville, said
"The massive amount of pressure on his chest rendered him unable to breathe," said Bush, whose office conducted an autopsy and investigation. "Because of that, he suffocated."
State trooper Claude Mohr, who investigated the case, said
Mrs. Weaver was not in custody and will probably not be charged, the trooper said. "She was trying to restrain her husband," Mohr said. "There's no indication there was any foul play intended."
Weaver came home drunk and in a bad mood at about
After Weaver "threatened to shoot the wife and two sons and burn the house down," his wife attempted to subdue him while a son was sent to get the state police, Mohr said.
Mohr said Weaver's drinking may have contributed to his death.
