Woman reportedly calls 911, asks how to kill her boyfriend

A New York woman is in jail Monday after allegedly calling 911 over the weekend and asking dispatchers how she could kill her 76-year-old boyfriend.

Zelda Cotton, 54, of Tonawanda, was intoxicated and “ranting and raving and swearing” when officers showed up to her home Saturday, where she admitted to hitting the man with a VCR tape several times, the City of Tonawanda Police Department told Fox News.

Officers also witnessed her swinging a leaf blower battery at him in a “threatening manner”, according to WGRZ.
