Tim Eubank's Builds Defense

Nacogdoches resident Tim Eubanks is accused of killing his wife. He remains in the hospital, but he now has a defense attorney.  The question every one is asking is why Eubanks would even want to kill his wife, Tina. No one wants to know it more than his defense attorney John Heath Jr.   "This is something that is completely out of character and that there must be something much more than a daily stress."

The defender is as perplexed as those who personally knew the medical imaging director. Marsha Ault, a friend, shares what Tina said this week about her husband. (She said)"he was such a blessing and he was a real gift to our family and that was Tuesday night." And another friend, Marsha Jacobson,  talks about what the eldest son said of his adoptive father before his mother's death. "He just said that he will always thank him for loving his mother and taking him and his four sisters as his own children and he said I love him for that." yet rumors and speculations about what went on behind closed doors are spreading. Heath said, "there doesn't appear to be any history at all of domestic abuse, or anything like that." instead, heath suggests mental health issues. Epilepsy and a possible suicide attempt with prescription medications have prevented a productive attorney client visit.   " when i spoke with him he was not in a position for us to sit down and talk about the particulars of his recollection of the events of that morning and so we have not done that." family members are instructed not to talk about the details of that day. Investigators nor attorneys aren't commenting on how tina died until they receive a preliminary autopsy report. Investigators may want eubanks in jail, but he'll remain in the hospital until a doctor's release.  Heath said,   "he's not being coddled up there. He's handcuffed to a bed and not allowed to have any visitors at all and there are armed police and not allowed to have any visitors at all and there are armed police officers standing outside his room." a stark contrast to his children's plans for friday night.    They attended and participated in a christmas celebration where tina eubanks' life will be honored.   Saturday morning a memorial service will be held at the church of jesus christ of latter-day saints for tina eubanks. Visitation is from 9:30 to 10:30.   The service will start at 11:00.
