An Ohio woman was sentenced last week after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter for smothering the father of her three children by sitting on him.

Mia Landingham pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter on Wednesday and was sentenced to three years probation and 100 hours of community service.

Landingham, who was believed to weigh over 300 pounds at the time of the Aug. 2009 incident, sat on Mikal Middleton-Bey as he was face first on the couch.

According to her lawyer, there was a history of domestic abuse between Landingham and her boyfriend.

Investigators say the victim was 5′10″ tall and weighed 126 pounds. andingham is 5′9″ tall.

A police scale that went up to 350 pounds wasn’t enough to accurately weigh the Cleveland woman.

SMH. What a shame. Everything about this story seems sad — from the domestic abuse, to the death, to the three children who lost their father, but if we’ve ever heard a good incentive to lose a few pounds, this might be it.
