(Newser) – A sex game gone wrong apparently killed a Tennessee man last weekend, and his wife has been charged with reckless homicide. The woman tied her husband up, put a ball gag in his mouth, wrapped his head in duct tape, leaving only nostril slits to breath through—and left to spend the night with another man, authorities said. She returned 20 hours later to find him dead.

The victim's suspicious family is pressing for more serious charges, but the woman insists bondage was a normal part of the couple's sex life and that her husband's death was just an accident. "He was into bondage," her attorney told ABC News. "He always got himself untied in the past."

This article is misleading. While she tied her husband up, she left him there - alone - [to spend the night with another man]. How is that considered a sex game? No sex, nor play was involved between the husband and wife.
