HOMOSASSA, FL – Citrus County deputies arrested 55-year-old Burt Conrady after they say he beat his mentally challenged girlfriend in the head and face with some frozen meat.
The victim told police that Conrady got angry after she took the wrong meat out of the refrigerator. He had clearly requested ham croquettes but she pulled out ham steak and pork chops.
Enraged over her inability to follow directions, Conrady allegedly began beating his girlfriend with the frozen meat. Police say Conrady denied striking his girlfriend, but noted she had swelling on her cheek.
Burt Conrady was arrested and charged with abuse of an elderly person or disable adult.
Not surprisingly, this isn’t the first story we have reported on involving a Floridian beating on an elderly, disabled mate with some meat.
Back in 2009, Elsie Egan was accused of hitting her terminally ill boyfriend in the head and face with a 10-16 oz. slab of raw steak because he wanted a dinner roll instead of the sliced bread she’d offered.
