Christmas time can bring out the best and worst in people, along with the “weird.”
The Kenosha County District Attorney’s office is charging 46-year old David Dietz with strangulation and suffocation after he allegedly used his belly fat to prevent his 40-year old live-in girlfriend from breathing for a time during an argument about her going to the grocery store.
Reports indicate Dietz had already punched the victim — splitting her lip — when he grabbed her and forced her face into his stomach, and she could not breathe. Dietz weighs about 300 pounds, while police say the girlfriend is less than half that. She refused any medical attention.
