Milky Melodrama

Daniel Pacheco, 68, allegedly slit his own wrists after stabbing his girlfriend, Betty Galas, 68, during an argument in their Daytona Beach, Fla., home. The source of the argument? “She didn’t like the milk he had bought,” Police Chief Mike Chitwood said. “So she went out and bought her own milk.” That sounds like a reasonable solution, but it angered Pacheco enough to stab Galas at least four times, cutting her face, piercing her liver and bladder, and collapsing her lung, according to a police report. Doris Mehler, a neighbor who is good friends with the couple, doesn’t think milk was the motive, though. “You don’t just pick up a knife and stab someone over milk,” she said. “The milk was just the icing on the cake.” (MS/Daytona Beach News-Journal) ...At least we now know what the milk went with.
