Woman charged in beating death
A Southern California woman has been charged with beating her boyfriend to death with cans of food.
Prosecutors on Thursday filed a murder charge against 59-year-old Linda Jackson of Lake Los Angeles.
She was in custody and it was unclear whether she had obtained an attorney.
KNBC-TV Channel 4 reported that Jackson is accused of striking her 59-yearold boyfriend, David Ruiz, in the head with a can of peas, a can of carrots and a can of chicken broth on Tuesday at her home.
If convicted, she could face life in state prison.
