Texas Woman Allegedly Stabbed Boyfriend To Death With Stiletto Heel

Texas Woman Allegedly Stabbed Boyfriend To Death With Stiletto Heel | Gen's Rea: Crime & Punishment | Scoop.it
Houston police say a 44-year-old woman stabbed her 59-year-old boyfriend to death with a stiletto heel during an argument on Sunday morning.
Genevieve Valle's insight:

A Texas woman is facing murder charges after authorities say she stabbed her boyfriend to death with her stiletto heel. This particularly violent murder is giving a new meaning to the phrase, "her shoes are to die for." I don't recall the Barbri professor including stilettos on the list of deadly weapons, but now I feel we may have to revisit that list. Thankfully, the woman is in custody and is due in court tomorrow.

Pre-med Univ. of South Florida student charged with first degree murder for tricking girlfriend into taking abortion pill

Pre-med Univ. of South Florida student  charged with first degree murder for tricking girlfriend into taking abortion pill | Gen's Rea: Crime & Punishment | Scoop.it
Genevieve Valle's insight:

Another horrendous crime out of Florida... This pre-med student, John Welden, sent his pregnant girlfriend to see his OB/GYN father. Welden told his girlfriend that his father diagnosed her with an infection requiring her to take antibiotics. Welden swapped the anibiotic pill for Cytotec, the abortion pill. He instructed his girlfriend to take the "antibiotics" three times a day for a week. His girlfriend only learned about the abortion pills when she showed up to the emergency room a week later, having aborted the pregnancy. Welden's girlfriend was six weeks pregnant and communicated her intent to carry the pregnancy to term to all of her friends and family. Federal authorities have since charged 28-year-old Welden with first degree murder and tampering. Normally, a 6 week old fetus would not be considered viable, but federal law provides otherwise. Under the Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004 (18 USC 1841), an "unborn child" is defined as “member of the species homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb.” The Act further provides that if an unborn child is killed during the commission of a federal crime, it will constitute murder. Here, Welden's tampering with his girlfriend's prescription (a federal crime) allows authorities to tack on a first degree murder charge. Welden faces life in prison for his crimes. It is not clear what role, if any, his OB/GYN father played in the commission of these crimes.
