Hubby jailed for killing wife with remote control

London, December 19: A UK court sentenced a man to three years in prison for killing his wife by hurling a remote control on her head.
Paul Harvey, 46, an electrical engineer threw the four-ounce remote at his US diplomat wife Gloria Laguna during a quarrel at home.

Laguna, 48, who suffered from a defect to the vertebral artery at the back of her head, was rushed to the hospital after she collapsed on the spot.

Doctors declared her dead the next morning.

“By fluke chance it landed at the exact spot where she had this congenital weakness,” the Daily Express quoted Harvey’s lawyer Jonathan Goldberg QC, as telling the Old Bailey.

The court was told that the couple had a petty row about his former wife’s stepdaughter as they sat watching TV at their flat in Euston, north- west London, on March 22.

The court also heard that the husband-wife due had consumed cocaine on the night of the incident.
