Woman killed ex-husband during sex
OVIEDO, Fla. — A woman in Central Florida said Wednesday that she killed her ex-husband during sex because she just wanted to make him stop.
The 911 call made by Anita Smithey’s neighbor after she said the 41-year-old admitted to killing her ex-husband was just released.
Smithey had her first appearance in court on Wednesday. She was charged with murder after police said she shot and killed her ex-husband Rober Cline with a .38-caliber handgun.
His body was found in a bedroom in Smithey’s Oviedo home early Tuesday.
Police said Smithey stabbed herself with a single-blade folding knife to make it look like self-defense in what authorities said they thought was a case of domestic violence.
According an arrest report, while on the way to South Seminole Hospital and with an officer present, Smithey told a paramedic that she and her ex-husband had been drinking and engaged in consensual sex.
“Anita said Robert became mad and started questioning her â€¦ thought she was sleeping with another man,” the report said.
The report also said the sex began to get rough and that Cline would not stop.
“She received her firearm, cocked the hammer and placed it back into an unknown drawer,” the report said. “Robert had a knife in his hand, and they struggled over the knife, at which time he threw her back on the bed.”
The report said she then got the gun from the nightstand and put it under her pillow.
“Anita then said she didn’t know why she shot him and she wasn’t in fear, she just wanted him to leave and that she was only going to shoot the gun to scare him,” the report said.
Smithey is being held under no bond, and she has been appointed a pubic defender.
