One of the stranger crimes of passion lately is this weekend's murder of Roosevelt Bonds. His girlfriend Anna Rinehart beat him to death with one of her size 12 shoes outside a Brownsville barbecue restaurant. There are other reports of abuse and brawls with the couple, but the Daily News says after seeing her with another man Bonds knocked her teeth out, then Rinehart went after him with her shoe. "Cops said Rhinehart sat on Bonds' chest as she whacked him with her high heels. Both stood about 5-feet-9, though she outweighed him by about 40 pounds."
The Post says that Rinehart was charged with manslaughter and criminal possession of a lethal weapon - her shoe.
