Wheeling police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 6:49 p.m. Saturday February 9, 2019 to a report of a person in cardiac arrest outside in a backyard hot tub in the block of 300 Marion Court. Wheeling police were first on the scene and started CPR after finding Laura Huska unresponsive.

Firefighter/paramedics arrived and continued resuscitation efforts with Advanced Life Support. Firefighter/paramedics transported Laura Huska was transported to Glenbrook Hospital in Glenview, where she was pronounced dead.

Wheeling police investigators later discovered video from a home security camera that showed the couple had been drinking in the hot tub for a prolonged period when Laura Huska, age 57, tried unsuccessfully to get out of the hot tub. Next, Laura’s husband Eric Huska, age 58, tried to help his wife get out of the hot tube, but then closed the hot tub lid over her and walked into the house, according to the police report.

Saturday afternoon of drinking in a hot tub for a married Wheeling couple ended with the wife dead and her husband charged in her killing, police said Tuesday.

Police discovered the video showed Laura initially struggle with the cover, but she eventually stopped moving. About 90 minutes later, Eric Huska returned to the tub and opened the lid. At this point the video show him at the hot top with Laura Huska floating in the water, according to Wheeling Police Department.

Police said alcohol was a factor.

Eric Huska was charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of his wife.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office ruled the death of Laura Huska as drowning by entrapment.

Police had no previous contact with the couple and say Eric Huska has no prior criminal history.

Huska appeared in court Tuesday February 12, 2019. The Cook County judge set bail at $10,000, and Eric Huska was free on 10% ($1,000). If convicted of the involuntary manslaughter charge, Eric Huska could face three to 14 years in prison, according to state statute.
