Stun gun used on sleeping wife in murder attempt, say deputies

A 62-year-old woman was sleeping in the Deerfield Beach home she shared with her husband of nearly three decades when he used a stun gun against her neck and pressed a garbage bag over her face, the Broward Sheriff's Office said.

In the early hours of Saturday morning, John Talbot, 65, had knelt next to Nadette, his wife of 28 years, while she slept, deputies said. He used a stun gun on her multiple times in an attempt to incapacitate her; the white plastic bag was pressed against her face to try and suffocate her, according to Deputy Louis J. Bonhomme's report.
