    Australian Woman Kills Boyfriend Who Stopped Her From Playing Springsteen

    Thursday, March 13, 2008

    An Australian woman stabbed her de facto husband to death after he stopped her playing her favorite Bruce Springsteen CD.

    Karen Lee Cooper told arresting police: "I couldn't even play Bruce Springsteen on my stereo -- can you believe that? Can you believe that?"

    She later again told police: "I mean, who doesn't like Bruce Springsteen? I'm 49 years old and I want to play my own music."

    In the Supreme Courty in Brisbane Thursday, Cooper, 50, was jailed for eight years.

    She pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Kevin Lee Watson on July 8, 2006.

    She was originally charged with murder but the court accepted a manslaughter plea on the basis she had no intention to kill.

    The court heard Cooper stabbed Watson through the aorta after they had been drinking at their Cedar Grove home, south of Brisbane.

    It sounds like he couldn't stand listening to the same cd for the millionth time. I know people who play the same stuff over and over. I know a girl who watches a harry potter movie every night.

    What the heck is a 'de facto' husband?

    So let me get this right...a man is dead because he wouldn't let his 50 year old wife play Bruce Springsteen? And she only got 8 years? I mean, seriously!!!

    A 50 year old woman utters a phrase I've heard many, many teenagers utter "I'm XX years old and I want to play my own music." and all she gets is 8 years?!?! Is it not obvious that this woman cares about no one but herself?

    I guess once I get older, if I've been drinking, I can go and kill someone because they told me to shut up and I might do 4 years (can't forget "out early for good behavior" etc.) for it?!? I bet this isn't even limited to the Australian legal system.

    Never, Never under estimate ones passion for their choice of music; even if it was the umpteenth continious time that it was played.

    Probably like some states here "Common Law". IE depending on the state if you live together for more than X years, you're considered to have a common law marriage by the state.

    Thank God Australia passed their gun grabbing laws or she might really have hurt him.
