A 136 kg woman from Pennsylvania pleaded guilty after crushing her boyfriend to death.
44-year-old Windi Thomas murdered 44-year-old Keeno Butler at their home in Erie, Pennsylvania after drinking.
Thomas initially attacked the much lighter Butler by hitting him over the head with a table leg.
Then she crushed him using her body, sitting on his chest. Thomas weighs over 136kgs, while Butler weigs just 54kgs.
According to the coroner's report, Butler’s death was "caused by respiratory insufficiency secondary to blunt force trauma to the neck and thoracic compression, exacerbated by blunt force trauma to the head".
"Windi Thomas is in Erie County Court today for a preliminary hearing. Police say she admitted to killing her boyfriend. The judge held all charges for court, including criminal homicide." — Jackie Roberts (@JackieRoberts22) June 6, 2018
As a result of her plea deal, her sentence will be reduced to 18-to-36 years from the normal 20-to-40 years.
Thomas remains at Erie County Prison while awaiting her sentencing, which is due to take place on 21 December 2018.
