A Manhattan personal assistant has told investigators that she fatally bludgeoned her boss, the well-connected real estate agent Linda Stein, in the woman’s opulent Fifth Avenue apartment because Ms. Stein swore at her, waved a stick at her and blew marijuana smoke into her face, the police said today.I have to say, having been an assistant to many an asshole, I can empathize with the desire to beat the living hell out of your employer/tormentor. But, then another part of me is thinking, "your boss blew some herb your way?! I should be so lucky!"
Ultimately, if what Natavia Lowery says is true, and she was struck by Ms. Stein "six or seven times on Oct. 30 with a four-pound exercise stick" then I think my own personal jury will no longer be out on this one.
Someone should tell Ms. Lowery to make sure she isn't cracking a damn smile in public again until her trial is over, though.
