Drinking companions

In Dublin, Anna Marie Pezzillo and Rachel Comiskey, who both are 35, have pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Ian Quinn, 32. They got eight and six years in jail, respectively. Pezzillo got eight because, said the judge, her 112 previous convictions showed that “over many years she was a person who had no respect at all or capacity to obey the law.”

Two days of drinking vodka and use of illegal drugs led to a fight which ended with the women putting a plastic bag over Quinn’s head. He suffocated and died.
