I love my home town of Brockton. . . The town of creative killers!
"The state Supreme Judicial Court rejected claims by a man convicted of stomping an elderly woman to death in a purse snatching that the victim's frailty - not his actions - caused her death!"
"Scott Tevlin, convicted in 1997 of first-degree meurder in the death of an elderly woman, claimed the sneakers he wore as he stomped on the 74 year-old woman weren't dangerous weapons because she wouldn't have died if she hadn't suffered from hardening of the arteries."
"Authorities said Tevlin used the $40 in her purse to buy crack cocaine."
Well, at least he had a good reason for killing her!
