Spanish woman gets 2 years for stabbing the boyfriend who called her fat

By m.p. – Aug 31, 2009 – 2:29 PM

He made the comments publically at a family dinner in a local restaurant

A woman who stabbed her boyfriend after his repeated insulting remarks about her weight at a family dinner has been sentenced to two years in prison for the attack. The ruling took into account that she was emotionally disturbed by his comments and also that she stabbed him after mixing alcohol with anti-depressants.

It happened last year after the dinner in a local restaurant in Abrera, Barcelona province, where the victim is said to have publically told his girlfriend that she was too fat to run, and should stop eating as she was so fat and would have to find another man.

He is reported to have refused to discuss his comments once they returned home.

After taking some of the anti-depressants prescribed by her doctor and drinking two cans of beer, the accused attacked her boyfriend with a kitchen knife as he lay lying in his bed, inflicting a total of 11 stab wounds. EFE reports that she stopped when she realised what she was doing, insisting on taking him to hospital and calling the police.

The court gave her the minimum sentence, ruling that she was affected by the mix of drugs and alcohol and by her humiliating experience in the restaurant. They also found that she has low self-esteem and limited intelligence.

09/07/1999 – Celexa & Alcohol

This is being remailed to make a minor correction. It comes from Dr.
Tracy and our ICFDA Director in Norway–

“I feel that this information coming in from our director in Norway is
so critical that it needs to get to all of you immediately. Hope you
can translate his English =-) Celexa has frightened me more than any
of these drugs since long before it was ever approved. We will be
hearing MUCH more about this extremely dangerous med. But if this is
happening with Celexa, the damage from the others being mixed with
alcohol is also there. How long will it take before anyone begins to
see this, who knows? The tragic twist to this is that these drugs
produce such an overwhelming craving for alcohol.” Ann

In Denmark the magazine: “Ugeskrift for Laeger” (a weekly magazine for
doctors) will publish a study that says that Celexa (citalopram,
Cipramil) can lead to death in combination with alcohol. They have
found that 4 users of celexa have died, and the obduction showed
normal doses of both Celexa and alcohol (0.8 per thousand) for some of
them. They say it’s to early to draw any conclutions, but the Danish
Legemiddelstyrelsen (the Danish FDA), are saying they will contact
other countries, and ask if they have noticed any of this problems. I
will try to pass along an abstract of this “obduction-study” when it
becomes available.
