Windi Thomas pleaded guilty to the third-degree murder of Keeno Butler, who died from suffocation.

Thomas, 44, also hit Mr Butler with a table leg during the fight, a court in Pennsylvania was told.

She then lay on top of her boyfriend, who weighed around nine stone, and used her stomach to prevent him from breathing, Jet 24 reports.

Her defence lawyer claims she had been drinking and then passed out on top of 44-year-old Mr Butler, accidentally killing him.

Lawyer Mark Del Duca added that it was not her intention to kill her partner.

He added: “The actual cause of death is she collapsed on him and he basically died of suffocation."
