Labrosse approached her ex-husband as he was sleeping in his recliner at about 8:35 a.m. Feb. 4, and allegedly placed a grocery bag over his head while tightening it around his neck and placing a pillow over his face, according to a probable-cause affidavit.
Labrosse's ex-husband, who has multiple sclerosis, told police he broke away from the bag, but could not get away from Labrosse because of his medical condition, the affidavit said.
Labrosse then found a glass jar and allegedly began to hit her ex-husband numerous times in the head before he pushed back on the recliner, breaking it, causing both of them to crash backward to the floor. He said she continued to hit him with the jar, and then she went to the closet and grabbed a hammer. He said she hit him repeatedly in the head with the hammer, telling police he thought he had been hit about 60 times as she allegedly pinned him and kept hitting him in the head.
A neighbor who heard the commotion came to the door, but Labrosse said they were "fine." Eventually, she went to the bedroom. Her ex-husband managed to make his way to the front door to unlock it for the police, but continued to lie on the floor. He was transported to the hospital and treated for numerous head lacerations, a head injury, broken ribs and a broken finger. He continues to recover from his injuries, the affidavit said.
Labrosse has a 2011 conviction for battering the same victim.
