You better not make her mad!

CHICAGO -- Not a gun, not a knife -- but a simple house key.
That apparently was the weapon of choice in a weekend killing of a 24-year-old Chicago man that the medical examiner's office on Monday ruled a homicide.
Coty Jackson was pronounced dead early Sunday at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn after he was stabbed in the back of the neck during a fight at his family's home in the Marquette Park neighborhood.
The police report indicated the weapon may have been a house key, said Officer Marcel Bright, a spokesman for the Chicago Police Department.
The autopsy report confirms the cause of death was a stab to the neck but does not say what caused that fatal wound, the Cook County medical examiner's office said Monday.
"It's a first for me," Sgt. Kevin Duffin when asked if keys had ever been used before in a slaying.
Jackson apparently was involved in a quarrel with his father's girlfriend when the stabbing occurred some time after midnight, Duffin said.
A woman described as in her mid-40s was in police custody. But police said Monday afternoon that no charges had been filed.

Prosecutors: No charges in 'key' stabbing
May 22, 2007

Prosecutors declined Tuesday to file criminal charges against a woman they say fatally stabbed her boyfriend's son over the weekend.
Finding "insufficient evidence," officials from the Cook County state's attorney's office ordered the suspect released in the Sunday morning death of Coty Jackson, spokeswoman Tandra Simonton said.
Jackson, 24, was stabbed after quarreling with the woman inside the home they shared with the victim's father in the 6400 block of South Artesian Avenue.
Authorities initially believed a house key was used to stab Jackson in the back of the neck. An autopsy indicated a knife was likely used, police said.
So...let me get this straight...
How does one get stabbed in the back of the neck in an argument and no charges brought?
I guess that answers how I was falsely charged with DV.
Had there only been an arguement and had I only stabbed her in the back of the neck I'd have a year of my life back and thousands of dollars in legal fees...
The one flaw in my hypothisis is that I'm male...They would see through it right away...
