Woman Suffocates Her Boyfriend to Death by Sitting on Him
A 300-pound American woman identified as Windi Thomas, 44, has been sent to prison for killing her boyfriend Keeno Butler, also 44, by sitting on him to suffocate him, MetroUK reports.
Thomas, of Erie, Pennsylvania, stabbed Butler in the hand then battered him with a table leg after a night’s drinking in March this year.
Her lawyers were adamant that the killing was unintentional, and said that Thomas only killed Butler – who weighed 120 pounds – after collapsing on top of him while drunk. But prosecutors highlighted how she had also beaten and stabbed him.
After Butler’s death, an autopsy ruled he had died of ‘respiratory insufficiency secondary to blunt force trauma to the neck and thoracic compression, exacerbated by blunt force trauma to the head.’
Thomas dialed 911 after the slaying and screamed ‘I killed my boyfriend.’ Cops who attended the scene found a table leg with bolts protruding covered with blood.
