Woman accused of killing boyfriend with stiletto heel

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a Georgia woman struck her boyfriend in the head with a stiletto heel and killed him.

Richmond County sheriff's Capt. Scott Peebles said Monday that 46-year-old Thelma Carter of Augusta is charged with murder in the death of 58-year-old Robert F. Higdon.

Authorities say they believe Higdon was killed sometime Sunday evening after a dispute between the two inside their home.

Peebles told the Augusta Chronicle that police recovered the body Monday morning after Carter returned and notified them.
Authorities say an autopsy has been scheduled for Tuesday.

Jail records did not indicate whether Carter has an attorney in the case.
