A woman in Lake Jackson, Texas was indicted on a charge of negligent homicide for allegedly killing her husband... with a sherry enema. Pumping him full of two large bottles of sherry caused his blood alcohol level to skyrocket to .47 percent.
Michael Warner, a 58-year-old machine shop owner, had a long history of alcoholism, but couldn't ingest alcohol because of medical problems with his throat, said Lake Jackson Police detective Robert Turner. The wine enema was a way he could become intoxicated without drinking alcohol, Turner said.Link (Thanks, c-lo!)
