300-pound Woman Pleads Guilty to Using Her Body to Crush Her Boyfriend to Death
The Associated Press reported that a Pennsylvania woman has pleaded guilty to killing her boyfriend, and it's the bizarre way she did it that's grabbing national headlines.
44-year-old Windi Thomas of Erie, Pennsylvania reportedly stabbed her boyfriend, 44-year-old Keeno Butler, then hit him with a table leg before using her body to crush him.
Yes, I said crush him. Thomas weighs around 300 pounds, and Butler weighed a mere 120 pounds.
Thomas is facing 18 to 36 years in prison after a guilty plea to third-degree murder. She was scheduled for her trial next week, but with the plea now in place she will be sentenced December 21st.
The Erie Times-News reports that Butler's sister and extended family hope for a harsh sentence given the gruesome nature of the crime and the malice with which it was carried out.
It's easy to laugh at a bizarre story like this, but just imagine going out that way. Ugh. We wouldn't wish it on anyone.
