Sadie Bell, a 58-year-old woman from Detroit shot her lover in the stomach after he — we kid you not — failed to ejaculate enough. Apparently Sadie thought his little supply of man juice meant that he'd been cheating on her since she was used to … more.
Although she was convicted and sentenced to 20 months to 10 years in prison earlier in the year, she has been awarded a $10,000 bond. The case is, indeed, "a little bizarre" as Chief Assistant Prosecutor Paul Walton put it. Her lover Edward Lee nearly died after Sadie shot him in the stomach. As a result of the assault, he suffered juries to his pancreas and colon.
The crazy thing is that Edward was cheating — just not on Sadie. He was cheating with her. And "she was quite upset with him," says Prosecutor Walton. They were in the midst of a 15-year affair.
According to Prosecutor Walton, "She also said to the police some very graphic things about how she expected him to perform, she was a cheap date, she liked sex, she expected him to be able to do what he's promised; and she said, in essence, to quote her, she was pissed off, so she shot him."
Unfortunately, this wasn't Sadie’s first crime of passion. She was accused of shooting her former husband in 1991.
She hasn't yet posted her $10,000 bond, but prosecutors are challenging it. They are questioning why it was even granted. "She has demonstrated that her past behavior is … to act out in violence, not necessarily with reason," Walton explains.
Seriously. Poor Edward is lucky to be alive. The last thing he needs is Sadie coming after him!
