This is the second ‘news’ story of today’s quiz to see if you can separate the truth from a hoax.
The first story was about the Alcoholic Beverage Control director who was arrested for drink driving.
Woman Survives Haunted House Hanging
It is alleged that last Tuesday night a Spokane man, Sean Allen Jennings, attempted to hang his estranged wife after luring her into his garage to see a haunted house he had built as a surprise for their 2 children for Halloween.
Reports suggest that Jennings managed to convince his wife to put on a blindfold before handcuffing her and putting a rope around her neck whilst she stood at the top of a ladder.
Jennings is then said to have pushed his wife. Whilst managing to balance on a toe for a while she begged her husband to let her go.
Apparently, Jennings reply was that hanging her was a better option than going through with the on-going divorce that they had initiated whilst still living together.
After his wife slipped and started hanging it is then alleged that Jennings pulled her up just before she lost consciousness.
Following this, it is further alleged that Jennings then told his wife to cover the rope burns around her neck with aloe vera and a neck brace.
Two days later Mrs Jennings went to police who could still see the burn marks and bruises on her wrists.
Officers went to the house where they found the rope, ladder, blindfold and handcuffs in the garage.
Jennings was arrested on charges of domestic violence and attempted first degree murder.
