What was I just saying...

about stories of women being killed with other implements besides guns?

A 55-year-old man was charged with murder on Saturday for allegedly beating his wife to death with a baseball bat, authorities said.
Isaiah Hurts is accused of killing his wife, Beverly, on Friday as the family's pastor waited outside the southwest-side home to counsel the couple.
The 54-year-old woman had been a victim of domestic violence for years as her husband struggled with a drinking problem, said Houston homicide investigator Roger Chappell. Last week, Beverly Hurts "finally got fed up" enough to leave the couple's apartment in the 11900 block of Oakmoor to move into a shelter for battered women, Chappell said.
Bats are bad news for women! When will we wise up and institute common-sense measures such as bat licensing and registration? Close the bat show loophole NOW!
