Tewana Sullivan, Slow-Cooker Killer, to Stew for 23-50 Years

Tewana Sullivan, the Detroit woman dubbed the slow-cooker killer, was sentenced to 23 to 50 years in prison for the death of her friend Cheryl Livy in a fight last year over the 2016 presidential race.

Sullivan, 51, and Livy, 66, were at Livy’s apartment on Oct. 22 when there was a fight and Sullivan beat Livy with the heavy slow-cooker. When police arrived they found both women covered in blood. They took Livy to a hospital where she died three days later.

Sullivan, who has bipolar disorder, claimed she hadn’t taken her medication around the time of the killing, according to MSN News. She also was drunk, with a blood-alcohol level of 0.41, when she and Livy got in a heated argument over politics.

Facing a first-degree murder charge in May, Sullivan pleaded guilty to second-degree murder with the caveat that she was mentally ill, which would make her eligible for parole after 23 years and allow her to receive health care while incarcerated.

However, Sullivan said she doesn't expect to live through her sentence.

“You might as well go ahead and execute me, because I'm not going to make it to 73,” the Detroit Free Press reported her as saying. “I'm going to die in jail, as far as I'm concerned.”

Livy’s sister, Ann McDonald, told Circuit Judge Michael Hathaway at Sullivans’ hearing that she’s “forgiving her for what she has done. I don't know what else to say.”
