Wife Shoots Husband to Death Over Warm Beer in Missouri

Tuesday , December 05, 2006

ST. LOUIS A St. Louis man was shot to death by his wife after giving her a can of warm beer, police said.

The shooting happened Sunday. Names have not been released. The woman was taken into custody.

The wife allegedly admitted shooting her husband, who was about 70 years old, in the kitchen of their home. The man was shot four or five times in the chest after giving his wife a can of warm Stag beer.

The house was among thousands in the St. Louis area that lost power after a winter storm hit the region Thursday.



I'm not touching this one with a 10 foot pole.

My wife reads this forum....

Cheers,

This is a very sad event. It brings three things to mind:
1. What is Stag beer?
2. He should've known better.
3. You'd think he'd have just set it outside for awhile.
Clearly, this incident was avoidable.

There is something to be said for beer that is not chilled down so much that your tastebuds become inactive. Though, this is normally a sign that it is past its best and the pub is trying to get rid of it.

Stag is a couple steps down from BMC. It's what you drink when you can't afford swill. As cold as it is down there, he must have warmed it up intentionally. No doubt thinking she would have gagged so violently that death would have followed ingestion.
