'Dirty Cowboy' sexual foreplay led to shooting

A woman accused of shooting her common-law husband to death told investigators it happened during a game of sexual foreplay they called "dirty cowboy."

Deborah Yvette Parker, 38, is charged with manslaughter in the June 30th shooting death of 58-year-old Broderick Craig Crachian.

Neighbours told police the couple had a heated argument a few hours before the shooting in the 2700 block of Lorraine.

But Parker said she didn't mean to shoot him.

"She describes it as playing 'dirty cowboy,'" Prosecutor Marcy McCorvey said. "She did admit to being in possession of the handgun and using it as a toy during foreplay with the victim's acquiescence and request for it to be used in that manner."

Parker's court-appointed attorney said she is "extremely distraught" about the "terrible accident." Parker is also charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. She has previous convictions for misdemeanor assault, drugs and prostitution.
