Prosecutors: Plate Used to Suffocate Woman


Recommended Posts


SPENCER, Wis. (AP) - A woman apparently suffocated when a decorative plate shaped like an Easter bunny was shoved down her throat, authorities said. Her husband has been charged with murder.

Patrick Zurkowski, 38, was charged Monday with homicide in the death of June Zurkowski, 40.

An autopsy found pieces of the plate broke off and lodged in the woman's throat, prosecutor Ken Heimerman said.

A criminal complaint said Patrick Zurkowski initially told police he was hit by his wife and acted in self-defense. He was being held on $1 million bail.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled April 5.
