Verizon worker tried to kill wife by choking her with rope after tapping her phone at his job and hearing her talk to mystery man A telecom worker has been accused of trying to kill his wife after listening in on her talking to a mysterious man. Robert Rutledge allegedly used a rope to strangle Jennifer Rutledge, causing her to pass out at their home in Lakeland, Florida. When she regained consciousness, the Verizon worker is said to have throttled the 47-year-old again -- but investigators say she was able to escape. Rutledge, 51, who is a repair technician, is accused of disconnecting the line after hearing a conversation between his wife and an unknown man. He is then said to have stormed over to his house to confront his spouse, who has been left with burn marks around her neck, according to deputies at Polk County Sheriff's Office. Mrs Rutledge, who declined medical attention, ran to a neighbour's house after the alleged attack on Monday and raised the alarm. The woman had rope burns around her neck Monday, but declined medical attention, deputies said. Rutledge left the area after authorities arrived, deputies said. But he turned himself in the following day at a Polk County Sheriff's Office substation. like us on facebook
