Woman ‘stabs father of kids to death because of cheap mother’s day present… flowers from Walmart’

A woman stabbed the father of her children several times on Sunday evening when he gave her a cheap mother’s day present that she did not like, according to police.

Paige Parkerson, 20, from Jefferson County, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the death of her live-in boyfriend Clifton JR Barkin, 22.

Police were called to the house by his mother Evetta Wright, shortly after she got a phone call from Parkerson allegedly confessing to the crime.

She told the Houston Chronicle: ‘Paige told me she killed JR, that he was dead.’

Mrs Wright had just dropped her son off at the house at 11.30pm on Sunday and that was after taking him to Wal-Mart to buy flowers and a Mother’s Day card for Paige.

Barkin, 22, was stabbed several times and died just after midnight  in the backyard of his yellow rental house.

Mrs Wright said she believes Parkerson expected a more expensive gift, such as jewelry.

The couple’s two sons were asleep at home during the incident. Both are now with relatives.

She is being held at Jefferson County Jail on $75,000 bond.
