TAMPA -- Hillsborough deputies on Wednesday charged a 32-year-old woman who they say strangled her boyfriend after an argument, put his body in a garbage bag and disposed of it in a shopping cart.
Katara Temika Paris, of 2918 Ramada Drive, Apt. 154, faces a charge of second-degree murder, as well as tampering with evidence.
Authorities said Paris and her 37-year-old boyfriend, David Trainor, got into an argument Sunday evening that turned physical.
They said Paris shoved Trainor, and he hit his head on a marble windowsill before falling to the floor. They said she then took her boyfriend's belt from his pants and strangled him with it.
After she put his body in a garbage bag, she wrapped the bag in duct tape and put the body in a shopping cart, deputies said. The cart was found early Monday by a pizza delivery man along Bruce B. Downs Boulevard.
