Woman Kills Friend With Crockpot
A Detroit woman is making headlines for killing her friend with a crockpot after they argued over politics.
A 50-year-old Michigan woman, Tewana Sullivan, beat her friend to death with a slow cooker over a heated political debate, and was initially charged with assault with intent to kill, according to CBS News. However, once the Detroit judge learned of her friend’s demise, he upgraded her charge to first-degree murder.
On October 22, 2014, Detroit police officers arrived at the home of 66-year-old Cheryl Livy in a Livona senior living housing complex at 10:45 p.m., where they discovered her bloodied and barely breathing.
Next to her badly beaten body was her hysterical and irate friend, Sullivan, hovering over her saying, “I’m sorry. I did it. I’m sorry. I did it. I’m sorry. I’m sorry.”
“She was sobbing. She was crying,” according to officer Michael Lewallen, who was one of the first officers at the scene.
She too was drenched in blood, and the walls contained splatters of Livy’s blood.
Police officer Thomas Blauvelt stated that upon his arrival, the cord of a busted slow cooker was wrapped around Livy’s neck.
“The crockpot is busted over her head with the cord around her throat.
Sullivan repeatedly beat her friend to death with a slow cooker that Livy owned until police officers came the housing complex at Purlingbrook.
Police officials say when they arrived, the assailant “seemed disoriented,” and a test confirmed that she was under the influence.
Sullivan’s initial charges were assault with intent to kill, but when Livy died from the injuries she sustained during the slow cooker beating, her charges were changed by a Detroit judge to first-degree murder, which requires a mandatory life sentence without the possibility of parole.
Ma’am…was it really THAT serious???
