Police: US woman killed over Easter attire spat

Police: US woman killed over Easter attire spat

Police say a woman shot her cousin to death during an argument that started because one woman didn't think the other was dressed properly for Easter dinner.
Police told the Columbus Dispatch that 19-year-old Danielle Pickens showed up Sunday night at the home of Evelyn Burgess wearing a T-shirt and jean shorts. Columbus police Detective Steven Eppert says 42-year-old Burgess told officers she thought the outfit was inappropriate and disrespectful.
The women fought. Police say Pickens walked outside to leave and Burgess shot her in the head with a handgun. Pickens died at a hospital early Monday.
Eppert says Burgess told investigators she didn't mean to shoot Pickens.
Burgess is to appear in court Tuesday on a murder charge. Court records don't show an attorney for her.
