This an update on a story we've followed here. This version doesn't mention what an earlier one did...that husband was also keen on getting a date with a woman who had no interest in a married man.
An Army Reserve sergeant whose husband is charged with concocting a story about her death returned home to Waterbury from Iraq Thursday night, intent on seeing her children and assuring her family she was OK.
Betsy Valentin's 21-hour flight ended at Bradley International Airport. When she got to her home in Waterbury, she met with family members and a police escort, the Republican-American of Waterbury reported Friday.
The escort was provided in case there was any trouble between Valentin and her husband, Edward Valentin, who is out on bond. No problems were reported.
Edward Valentin was charged last week with falsely reporting an incident after telling reporters that the Defense Department called him on his cell phone to tell him his wife died in an explosion in Iraq. Police later inspected his phone records and alleged that Valentin made up the story.
