EDIT: LINK FIXED!! (and it’s a longer version), but here’s part of the story :
BRISBANE, Australia — An Australian woman who stabbed her common law husband to death because she was tired of being bossed around says an argument over Bruce Springsteen was the last straw.
Karen Lee Cooper pleaded guilty to manslaughter Thursday and was sentenced to eight years in prison for killing partner Kevin Watson in a drunken argument at their home in northeastern Queensland state in July 2006.
Cooper, 50, called an ambulance after suffering what her lawyer Greg Maguire called a brain snap and stabbing Watson, 49, once in the chest with a kitchen knife.
He died at the scene.
Cooper told police she had become fed up with Watson telling her what to do during their two-year relationship.
On the night of the killing, she tried to play a Springsteen CD and he took if off the stereo, triggering a bitter argument.
“I mean, who the hell doesn’t like Bruce Springsteen, for God’s sake?” Cooper told police in a record of interview presented to the court.
“I just picked up a knife and I went ‘boom’.”
