A US woman weighing 136kg has admitted to killing her much smaller boyfriend by sitting on him.
Mia Landingham pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of Mikal Middleston-Bey, who weighs just 54.4kg, FOX8 News reports.
Landingham was sentenced to three years probation and 100 hours community service. She was immediately released from jail.
Police said the couple, who share three children together, were arguing last August when Landingham sat on Middleston-Bey.
Middleston-Bey died of asphyxiation .
The pair had a long history of domestic abuse, according to Landingham’s lawyer.
Landingham said she was sorry for squashing her boyfriend.
“I just want to say that I am sincerely sorry about this situation… I wish I could take it back.”
Middleston-Bey’s family were angered by the sentence.
“So basically you can say that I can go sit on somebody and get probation?” a family member said.
“I feel there wasn’t no justice.”
