Husband tried to kill latex allergy wife with rubber glove

`A spurned husband tried to murder his estranged wife by triggering her life-threatening allergy to latex with a rubber glove, a court heard yesterday.

Charles Henson, 39, put his fingers in Allison Phelps’s mouth while wearing the glove and told her she would die within four minutes, Lynne Matthews, prosecuting, told Bristol Crown Court. [..]

Miss Phelps had a life-threatening allergy to latex and carried an adrenaline injection with her at all times, the jury was told.’
