Taking advantage of the victim when she was more vulnerable, not much room for leniency for the criminal.

Daughter, relatives, what? Why living together live in?

How sad. Strangeness of circumstances don't matter.

We’re they living together as a couple or just sharing the house? What’s the bet they were a couple and she wanted to end the relationship.

Evil and sick old man. Now spend the last days of your useless life where you belong - in jail. Hope it's torture in there.

Rest in Peace to the poor young woman.

The world is a mysterious place. What did the 30 year old woman see in the man who was 40 years her senior?

A couple of questions come to mind...

70 and 30 years old? What was their relationship?

And golf club? Was it a wood or iron? Probably about a 7 iron or above is my guess.

Most 70 year olds would be deliriously happy to have a 30 yr old girlfriend... this nutcase murders her.

Maybe she was cheating on him with an 85 year-old.

Not enough information here to trash the women. Perhaps she was his granddaughter or niece who was taking care of him. We don't know there is a lot of information left out here so how can the JT jury convict this lady?

@kaimychal - agreed.

@therougou - and maybe she told him the night before, that she was pregnant ? Or maybe even, he was practicing his Golf swing beside the bed ? Who knows.... we can all but speculate upon motives ?

Do note, however, it was he, who called the Police. Also, the article has a discrepancy - "Beating" - suggests striking more than once, however he is reported to have said that he had "Hit her in face" - which implies a singular blow... so which was it ?

That's an incorrect conclusion. You clearly don't understand how it works. Google it.

Yet another man abusing and killing a woman.
