Michigan Woman Who Killed Abusive Husband Released From Prison [VIDEO]
After nearly two years in prison, a Waterford, Michigan woman who killed her abusive husband is being set free.
[PLEASE NOTE: Some of the details of this story are extremely graphic.]
Tina Talbot was sentenced to up to 15 years in prison for the 2018 killing of her husband. She says she endured years of abuse from her husband, fearing for her own life and the life of her son. She pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter after his fatal shooting in September of 2018.
After shooting her husband, Talbot went immediately to the hospital with broken bones and other signs of abuse.
She says that in the days preceding his death, her husband Milosz Szcepanowicz made numerous threats against her and her then seven-year-old son Phillip, who is autistic.
"He said 'I’m going to kill your son and I’m going to do it in front of you,'" Talbot told WXYZ in 2019. "'And I’m going to watch how you suffer when I slit his throat from one ear to the other and I put his blood all over you.'"
Talbot says the week leading up to her husband's death were the darkest days of her life. More details of Szcepanowicz's threats against the woman are here, again, the details are very graphic.
Talbot was granted parole earlier this year. Her attorney, Jerome Sabotta says it's about time she was released.
"It feels good for her. It feels good for her family. It feels good for the people that have been supporting her.”
