Cops: Sherry Enema Killed Texan
Wife faces homicide rap for administering lethal "bottoms up"
FEBRUARY 3--Meet Tammy Warner. The 42-year-old Texas woman is facing a homicide rap for allegedly giving her husband a lethal wine enema. Why a wine enema? Well, according to cops, Michael Warner, 58, liked to drink, but was unable to guzzle sherry due to a throat ailment. So the couple opted last May for a secondary delivery method for two large bottles of the booze. The sherry infusion drove Warner's blood alcohol level to a whopping 0.47 and triggered his demise, according to the below indictment, which charges that Warner knew that her husband "should not ingest or consume alcohol." In addition to a charge of criminally negligent homicide, Warner was hit with a second felony, for allegedly burning her husband's will one month before his May 2004 death. She destroyed the document, the indictment alleges, in a bid to "defraud or harm" others. Warner is pictured at right in a Lake Jackson Police Department mug shot. Her late husband is seen at left.
