A woman in Texas has been indicted on negligent homicide charges for allegedly giving her husband a sherry enema that killed him.

Michael Warner, 58, died last May after the enema, allegedly administered by his wife, Tammy, caused his blood-alcohol level to rise to .47%.

Detective Lt. Robert Turner said Michael Warner was an alcoholic who could not swallow liquor because of ulcers and heartburn.

“He was told that he could not drink alcohol or that he would die, according to the people that we interviewed,” Turner said. “We are going to prove that she gave him the sherry and that she knew that he wasn’t supposed to have any and that it could be detrimental to his health, and that she gave it to him anyway.”

Can you think of a worse way to go? Answers to the usual address, please, and mark your envelopes ‘Enema.’
