Pregnant Woman Allegedly Murdered Boyfriend After Verbal Disagreement Over Microwave Use, According To Reports
A pregnant woman, Keshia Golden, from Chicago allegedly fatally stabbed her boyfriend merely hours after the pair had their baby shower, according to the New York Post. Reports say the stabbing derived from a fight the two got into over who could utilize the microwave to reheat food. The 33-year-old woman was taken into custody and later charged with first-degree murder for the stabbing of 29-year-old Calvin Sidney, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.
The couple arrived back to their apartment with family members following their celebration. They then reportedly got into an argument about the microwave close to 3 a.m., according to prosecutors. Police say the woman, who is eight months pregnant, hit the plate out of Sidney’s hand and he then reacted by pushing her on the counter causing his uncle to break up the commotion. Sidney went into the bedroom, where the woman then reportedly stabbed him in his leg with a knife and fled the apartment. According to reports, Sidney’s femoral artery was allegedly cut and he later died at the hospital.
Once the 33-year-old returned to the apartment hours later, she was arrested. Reports say she didn’t know Sidney died and her mother, Tarsha Ellis said,
“She didn’t mean to kill anyone.”
Ellis told the Sun-Times,
“She’s broke up about it. She didn’t know you could kill someone by stabbing them in the leg. She just wanted him to leave because he was acting out, and she was worried about hurting the baby. And he wouldn’t go.”
“It was just toxic with those two. But they loved each other. If he could raise up right now, they wouldn’t have no case because he would never want charges against her.”
Amid a bail hearing, Golden was held on a $2 million bail and prosecutors claim the couple has had previous violent incidents in the past.
Golden’s attorney, Julie Koehler, spoke out against the $2 million bail. This will instruct Golden to make a $200,000 bond in order to be released.
“To not only force Keshia to give birth in jail but then to immediately take her child away after birth is cruel to the mother and the baby. “This heartless decision is contrary to Illinois law. All the evidence shows Keshia acted in self-defense. The only person she’s ever shown any violence toward was the man that was beating her,”
