A Chicago area man has been charged with involuntary manslaughter after drowning his wife in a hot tub.
Eric Huska of Wheeling is accused of closing the lid of a backyard hot tub, causing the death of Laura Huska. Home security video shows the couple drinking in the hot tub before the victim unsuccessfully tried to get out. It also shows Eric Huska trying to help his wife, but then closing the tub’s lid. Police said the wife is seen in the video struggling to get out. Eric Huska returned to the tub about 90 minutes later, opening the lid and finding his wife floating in the water. Huska appeared in court Tuesday when a judge set bail at $10,000.
