Woman Stabs Husband To Death Over Cheap Mothers Day Present
Barkin’s mother, Evetta Wright, received a call from Parkerson early Monday morning informing her that Barkin was dead. “Paige told me that she killed JR,” Wright told the Beaumont Enterprise. “That he was dead.”
Wright last saw her son at 11:30 p.m. the previous night, when she dropped him off at the home he shared with Parkerson, according to the Enterprise. Just before that, Wright had driven Clifton to Walmart so he could purchase flowers and a Mother’s Day card for Parkerson. Wright believes that her son’s fiancée attacked him because she expected a more lavish gift.
Parkerson, whose Facebook page lists her favorite quotation as, “if looks could kill i would be da murder of all my haters,” was arrested shortly after her phone call to the victim’s mother, the Houston Chronicle reported. She is currently being held at Jefferson County Jail on $75,000 bond.
