Woman jailed for food-rage killing
Friday 23 April 2010
An Australian woman who ran down and killed a man who threw cheese-flavoured snacks at her car was jailed yesterday for 25 years.
Sydney woman Sarah May Ward intended to injure Eli Westlake for throwing food at her vehicle, judge Roderick Howie told the New South Wales Supreme Court, describing the 21-year-old's murder as "a senseless act of anger".
"She clearly wanted to teach the young men a lesson," he said.
The jury was told that Ward, 39, had drunk two bottles of wine and used cannabis, amphetamine drugs and anti-depressants before getting into her car in Sydney's northern suburbs on 7 June 2008.
