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.

What the hell over a freaking outfit she shot her. If she didn't mean to shoot her why did she pick up the gun. I swear people go overboard with this thinking you have to be dressed a certain way for the lord. If she couldn't stand what she had on she should of just let her leave and do her own thing. But R.I.P. to this young woman.

What a useless senseless thing. This animal needs to have its veins ready. She killed a young women for absolutely nothing. You get into a disagreement you don't shoot someone in the head! Unreal.
