http://www.detnews.com/article/20100...er-Easter-wearPolice in Ohio say a woman shot her cousin to death during an argument that started because one woman didn't think the other was dressed properly for Easter dinner.
Columbus police say 19-year-old Danielle Pickens showed up Sunday night at the home of Evelyn Burgess wearing a T-shirt and jean shorts. Detective Steven Eppert says 42-year-old Burgess told officers she thought the outfit was inappropriate and disrespectful.
The women fought. Police say Pickens walked outside to leave and Burgess shot her in the head with a handgun. Pickens died at a hospital early Monday.
Eppert says Burgess told investigators she didn't mean to shoot Pickens.
http://www.dispatch.com/live/content...h.html?sid=101When a teenage cousin showed up at Evelyn Burgess' house for Easter dinner wearing what Burgess considered a revealing outfit, the hostess was not going to let the issue go.
According to family members who were present, Burgess got mad when her husband took notice of the T-shirt and jean shorts that Danielle Pickens was wearing.
Burgess, 42, told police that Pickens showed up at her house in an outfit that "was inappropriate and disrespectful to wear at Easter dinner," said Columbus homicide detective Steven Eppert.
"she didn't mean to shoot Pickens"??? What was she doing, then? Trying to force her into wearing a bandage-gauze Easter bonnet?
