An Oak Harbor man took his own life Sunday night after he apparently thought he had killed his wife, according to police and fire officials. A 27-year-old man choked his 28-year-old spouse into unconsciousness in the side yard of their East Whidbey Avenue house. A neighbor witnessed the assault and called 911 to report a possible homicide at just after 10 p.m., according to city officials. The neighbor ran over to the couple as the man was holding the woman on the ground. Both the neighbor and the husband, later identified as Michael J. Gibbons, thought that the woman was dead and cried out, according to officials.
