Best excuse ever.
"MAN accused of trying to kill his sado-masochistic wife told a court yesterday he was not allowed to under their “punishment contract”.
Charles Henson, 39, said Allison Phelps, 40, was a “self-proclaimed pain slut” who loved being “flogged and birched”.
But he also said killing was barred under the terms of their “master-slave” agreement. He said: “If I break bones, cut her, leave scarring or wounds without consent — that’s not allowed.”
Henson is accused of trying to kill Allison in a jealous rage by triggering a fatal allergy with a latex glove.
Henson returned from the US after they had split up and broke into Allison’s home in Coalway, Gloucs, Bristol Crown Court heard.
Henson is accused of stuffing his glove into her mouth. But he claimed he was only wearing latex gloves because he was cold.
He said he had turned the gas on in the house to kill himself. Allison’s new partner Michael Phelps was stabbed four times.
But Henson said that was accidental and in self-defence. Henson, of Wisconsin, USA, denies attempted murder.
The trial continues.'
Something tell me he might not get away with this one.
