Death Penalty

It appears that the Death Penalty can now be applied to those who steal beer from their significant other.

In Chicago yesterday, “Regina Williams, 55, of the 1000 block of North Waller Avenue appeared in Cook County Bond Court before Judge Israel Desierto, charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of Willie Anderson, 77, of the 2200 block of West Monroe Street.”

Miss Williams and Mr. Anderson were sitting in Anderson’s car outside his home when Williams became angry that he was drinking her beer. They began to quarrel, and Williams allegedly pulled a knife she carried for protection and began stabbing Anderson. As Anderson yelled for help she continued to stab away.

After the stabbing took place she seemed to show no remorse as she yelled to her victim’s nephew, “You better come get your uncle—I just killed him.” She then proceeded to get back in the car and drink her beer.

Oh, and did I mention she is currently on probation for a 2007 felony conviction for aggravated battery?  Go figure – I guess they should have kept this one locked up!  Hope they don’t screw this one up a second time.
