SHERMAN, Tex. -- A woman who police say was assaulted by her husband over the weekend has died. Police say Patricia Field, 26, was found dead in her Sherman apartment Wednesday afternoon. Police do not know the actual cause of her death.
Sgt. Bruce Dawsey of the Sherman Police Department says right now they cannot connect Field's death to the December 22nd assault. He says Field was treated and released from the hospital following that incident.
"The investigation is ongoing to determine the cause of death. The results from the autopsy will be back in 4 to 6 weeks, and we'll have a more definitive answer at that time." Sgt. Dawsey said.
Field's husband, Jimmy Field, Jr., is still in jail on assault charges. He was notified about his wife's death last night.
