Ohio woman dies in spat over Easter attire



Published: Tue, April 6, 2010 @ 9:41 a.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Police say a woman was shot to death in an argument with a relative who didn’t think she dressed properly for Easter dinner.

Columbus police say 19-year-old Danielle Pickens showed up Sunday night at the home of cousin 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 for Easter dinner.

The women fought, and police say when Pickens walked outside to leave in a car Burgess shot her in the head with a handgun. The younger woman died at a hospital.

Eppert says Burgess told investigators she didn’t mean to shoot Pickens.

Burgess is to appear in court today on a murder charge.
