world Updated: Aug 04, 2011 01:43 IST

Authorities say a woman struck her boyfriend in the head with a stiletto heel and killed him.

Richmond County sheriff's Capt. Scott Peebles said on Monday that 46-year-old Thelma Carter of Augusta, Georgia, is charged with murder in the death of 58-year-old Robert F Higdon.

Authorities say they believe Higdon was killed sometime Sunday evening after a dispute between the two inside their home.

Peebles told the Augusta Chronicle ( ) that police recovered the body Monday morning after Carter returned and notified them.

Authorities say an autopsy has been scheduled for Tuesday.

Jail records did not indicate whether Carter has an attorney in the case.
