    Oregon ER Nurse Strangles Intruder With Bare Hands
    Friday, September 08, 2006

    PORTLAND, Ore. — A nurse returning from work discovered an intruder armed with a hammer in her home and strangled him with her bare hands, police said.

    Susan Kuhnhausen, 51, ran to a neighbor's house after the confrontation Wednesday night. Police found the body of Edward Dalton Haffey, 59, a convicted felon with a long police record.

    Officer Katherine Kent said homicide detectives have determined that Kuhnhausen killed Haffey in self-defense. She said a prosecutor is investigating but that the case is not expected to go to a grand jury.

    Police said there was no obvious sign of forced entry at the house when Kuhnhausen, an emergency room nurse at Providence Portland Medical Center, got home from work shortly after 6 p.m.

    Under Oregon law people can use reasonable deadly force when defending themselves against an intruder or burglar in their homes. Kuhnhausen was treated and released for minor injuries at Providence.

    Haffey, about 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds, had convictions including conspiracy to commit aggravated murder, robbery, drug charges and possession of burglary tools. Neighbors said Kuhnhausen's size — 5-foot-7 and 260 pounds — may have given her an advantage.

    "Everyone that I've talked to says 'Hurray for Susan,' said neighbor Annie Warnock, who called 911. "You didn't need to calm her. She's an emergency room nurse. She's used to dealing with crisis."

    What did she do afterwards, eat him? hehehehehehe

    What a loser I am. I posted the following in the wrong thread. Here is the update -

    Here's a turn of events. It was in the paper today that the person she (51) choked apparently was a hired assassin. She was in the process of going thru a divorce with her 58 year old husband. The divorce was bitter apparently. Her husband hired a hitman to kill her. Apparently this skinny little dude was able to get into the house based on the estranged husband giving him the code to the alarm. He hits her on the head with a hammer and she chokes the living excrement out of him. Husband is now being held on $500k bail. I would suggest putting a suicide watch on him.

    I have to say in WA state, the divorce laws are so unfairly biased against the male, that I have developed a newfound sympathy for these stories. Perhaps wrongly so, but to have your wife just willy-nilly up and say I've had enough, get out of your house and go live in a cheap apartment, leave me all the belongings, pay me for it, and don't ask me to work tends to piss people off.
