LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Southern California woman has been charged with beating her boyfriend to death with canned food.


Prosecutors on Thursday filed a murder charge against 59-year-old Linda Jackson of Lake Los Angeles.
She was jailed. It's unclear whether she had obtained an attorney.
KNBC-TV  says Jackson is charged with striking her 59-year-old boyfriend, David Ruiz, in the head with a can of peas, a can of carrots and a can of chicken broth on Tuesday at her home.
If convicted, she could face life in state prison.
