Husband was arrested on suspicion of killing wife after she fell over in bathroom and hit her head

A husband was arrested on suspicion of killing his wife in a domestic violence incident after she drunkenly fell over in their en-suite bathroom and hit her head, an inquest heard. 

Tracy Bailey and her husband Austin had been sleeping in separate bedrooms in the week before she died, after they got into a ‘petty argument’ which was blown out of proportion, the inquest was told. 

When Mr Bailey awoke on September 10 last year he found his 44-year-old wife laying on her right side on their bathroom floor, with her head against the side of the shower tray and a clear head injury. 

In a statement to the inquest, Mr Bailey said: ‘I was distraught and did not want to believe that she was dead.’

LSU Garden News: Those tiny moths you see are producing webworms that are killing your lawn | Home/Garden

Larvae hatch a week or so later, maturing into adult moths in three to five weeks. There can be two or more generations each year.

Larvae are amber in color but become greener as they feed on the blades of grass at night, causing damage to the lawn.

Another sign of sod webworms are yellowing and browning patches of dead

The number one thing they should be thinking about, before the candles, before the dinner reservations and before the romantic music is cleanliness. Yes, I said cleanliness. Good personal hygiene and a clean house and car will ensure a good first impression. Not a believer yet, read on.
