FSU prof's wife killed in London attack

(ABC NEWS) An American woman killed in a knife attack in London Wednesday night has been identified as Darlene Horton, the wife of a Florida State University professor, her family confirmed to ABC News.

The university said FSU professor Richard Wagner was in London to teach a summer session that has since concluded. He and Horton, 64, had planned to return to Tallahassee, Florida, today, said James Pitts, director of FSU International Programs.

“There are no words to express our heartache over this terrible tragedy,” said FSU President John Thrasher. “We are shocked that such senseless violence has touched our own FSU family, and we will do all we can to assist Professor Wagner and his loved ones, as well as his friends and colleagues in the Psychology department, as they mourn.”
