Man Charged With Using Dumbbell In Girlfriend’s Beating Death

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ A 42-year-old Bridgeport man has been charged with beating his girlfriend to death with a 10-pound dumbbell.

The Connecticut Post reports  that Wilson “Junne” Cash was arraigned on a murder charge Tuesday in Bridgeport Superior Court in connection with the Sept. 27 death of 46-year-old Christine Jeffreys, who was found dead in her city apartment. Cash was returned Monday to Connecticut from Port Chester, N.Y., where he was arrested.

An arrest warrant affidavit suggests Cash fatally beat Jeffreys because she wouldn’t let him commit robberies to get money to buy crack cocaine. Police say witnesses implicated Cash in the killing.

Cash was ordered held on $1 million bail and his case was continued to April 10. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
