Sixty-two-year-old John Tabutt, from Florida , was sleeping last night and thought there was an intruder in his house. Not knowing who it was, and wanting to be a protective to-be husband (thinking his fiance was asleep in bed), he got out his gun and fired into the hallway where he heard the footsteps.
Well, the footsteps turned out to be those of his fiancee. He shot and killed her, one day before they were supposed to marry.
The Winter Springs Police are investigating the killing, but so far it appears to just be an accident. More results are expected after the investigation.
John Tabutt told investigators he thought he heard an intruder early Friday morning, got his gun and fired at a figure in the dark hallway. He struck his live-in fiancee, 62-year-old Nancy Dinsmore and killed her. Family members say the couple planned to get married Saturday in a small ceremony.
