Crucifixion

Pharmacist Karen Walsh killed her 81-years-old neighbor Mrs Rankin with a crucifix on Christmas Eve in a drunken rage. She struck her in the face and left the defenceless, frail and vulnerable grandmother with eight broken ribs on either side of her chest, Belfast Crown Court heard.The attack was so frenzied that the body of Jesus on the crucifix snapped. Walsh was jailed for a minimum of 20 years.
