Christian kills cousin over "skimpy" dress

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The sister of an Ohio woman killed during a fight that police say began over a skimpy Easter outfit says she can't explain what could have led to the shooting.

Ralinda Pickens says her sister, 19-year-old Danielle Pickens, always wore short skirts and shorts to family gatherings.

Columbus police say 42-year-old Evelyn Burgess shot Pickens Sunday night after an argument over jean shorts and a T-shirt the teen wore to Easter dinner.

Burgess is charged with one count of murder. She's Pickens' cousin.

Franklin County Municipal Court Judge William Pollitt set Burgess' bond at $500,000 during a court appearance Tuesday.
