Waterford Woman Charged In Husband's Murder Released From Jail

October 11, 2018 - 9:00 am

WATERFORD (WWJ) - A Waterford woman charged in the shooting death of her husband is out of jail.  

A district judge recently set aside an earlier bond refusal for 51-year-old Tina Talbot, allowing her to be released after posting a $25,000 cash/surety bond.

Talbot is charged with open murder and felony firearm in the death of her husband, Milosz Szcepanowicz. 

Authorities say Talbot called 911 on Sept. 14 to report that she had killed her husband. Officers found his body in the backyard of the couple's home on Meadowood Street, near Cooley Lake and Lochhaven Roads.

The couple’s 7-year-old son was at home at the time, but was unharmed. 

Family and friends describe Szcepanowicz, 45, as a controlling monster who abused Talbot for decades. She reportedly went through a four-day stretch of beatings from Szcepanowicz, which ended with his murder. Relatives told The Oakland Press it was a "do-or-die" situation for Talbot, who underwent surgery and spent several days hospitalized after the killing. 

Talbot is due back in court for a preliminary exam on Oct. 26, at which time a judge will determine if the case will proceed to trial.
