An Oklahoma City woman will serve a life sentence for beating a dwarf to death with a crystal ball.
Clara Ann Blocker, 41, pleaded guilty to the murder of Erik Scott Saxton, according to the Oklahoman.
Blocker, who is 5-foot-11-inches, also admitted to using a DVD player as her weapon of choice during the Sept. 16, 2010 attack on the 4 feet 5 inch Saxton, KOCO reported.
Blocker originally told detectives that she would never hurt Saxton “because he's a little person,” the Oklahoman wrote. She later alleged that the pair were drinking vodka when they got into an argument. Blocker grabbed a crystal ball and hit Saxton in the head before repeatedly striking him with the entertainment console. It is unclear what Blocker and Saxton were fighting about, detectives said.
Blocker was temporarily homeless when the pair began living together, Blocker said.
A judge in the Cleveland County District Court last Tuesday sentenced Blocker to life with the possibility of parole, News9 reported.
