CHARDON, Ohio - A woman has pleaded guilty to reckless homicide in Ohio for exercising her 73-year-old husband to death in a swimming pool.

Police in Middlefield, Ohio, said surveillance video showed 41-year-old Christine Newton-John pulling James Mason around the pool by his arms and legs and preventing him from leaving.

Mason had a heart attack June 2 after the extended swim session.

Newton-John pleaded guilty Thursday and faces up to five years in prison.

Police Chief Joseph Stehlik says Mason's death was investigated because of previous complaints that he was abused.

Mason was a longtime friend of his wife's family.

He knew her as John Vallandingham before she had gender reassignment surgery in 1993 and changed her name. They married in 2006.


  1. Yikes. The stories just get weirder. D'you think Christine's named herself after Olivia and what does Olivia have to say about it I wonder. "Let's get physical?"

  2. Awwww, how sweet :)

  3. Love can be painful LOL as he found out..

    Happy belated VD to dear you....


  4. Andrea:

    Of course (s)he did! But this was one of those three-minute posts and I didn't have time to address that.

    I went looking for a Google image of Christine and only Olivia's pic came up.

    "Let's Get Physical..." HA HA HA HA! Yes, but (s)he apparently took that a bit far with him...


    Uh, OK...I'd better warn Aidan then...


    Painful indeed, women (even transformed ones) can be so cruel...

    Happy Valentine's to you too...

  5. I'm laughing out loud at andrea's comment. "Let's get physical"... good one.

    Seriously, though... what was that old fucker thinking??

  6. Anna:

    Yeah, that Andrea's priceless, ain't she?

    And the old guy must have wanted her/him for his/her mind, not, er, body. What did s(he) want him for though?

    And how do you like that politically correct of all politicall correct terms:


  7. Angel:

    Exactly, but s(he) apparently didn't know the meaning of whoa! and he didn't know how to stop her...

  8. First of all..why didn't Newton-John turn off the surveillance video? and secondly, she must have the worst Lawyer in history!

    James must have had some money and Nude-on-John was just trying to speed up the process of collecting the proceeds from his estate.

    I will make a further assumption and guess that she may not have known that her husband was not a Dude before they got married and when Newton John found out she freaked, and began plotting.

    Putting up (and out) with a wrinkly old fart twice her age would be gross. It would be easy to kill simple 73 yr old run-of-the-mill man and over-stimulate both his ticker and his todger.

    BUT, James was born with advanced multitasking female wiring in his brain, so instead of overloading the primitive reptilian male brain, James is having multiple orgasms!

    I guess after a few years of that, NJ snapped and came up with death by trolling.

    Oh, so you're going with your real identity today...

    Some interesting theories, except you got it totally screwed up on one count.

    It's the hubby who I'm guessing didn't know his bride was actually a he, not a she, originally.

    But wait...the story says he was a longtime family friend. So how could he not have known that s(he) wasn't really a he?

    Or, who knows...maybe the 73-year-old was actually a woman to begin with and got his own "gender reassignment surgery" back in the 80s, before it was perfected?


    Anyhow, at least your comment allows me to get to 10 on the comment count.

    This will allow me finally to pay for my own gender reassignment surgery.

  10. now there's an idea . . .

    Oh, you're an evil witch...
