Many cases of murder seem to happen when a marriage has gone south and a spouse wants a divorce. Sometimes the wife who wants a divorce get killed for wanting to leave and get a divorce and sometimes the husband who wants the divorce but doesn't want to give up half of his money kills the wife. And vice versa.
It is amazing that many of these people live admirable lives with no trouble with the law. They come from all walks of life and often have children. Many have lucrative careers and they are not fighting over spliting a small amount of money. It seems the murderer winds up in prison for life or gets the death penalty.
It makes you wonder why people won't settle for 1/2 of a loaf through a divorce. Why people kill someone rather than let them go or let their money go is hard to understand. How can you go through a tremedous effort to become a nurse, a doctor lawyer or successful bsiness owner and through all the years they invested to have the life they have and then they throw it all away and spend their lives in the prison system or get the death penalty. When children are involved, it makes you wonder why they are not thought of. The worst cases is when the woman killed is pregnant.
I assume they might spend the rest of their lives in jail wondering why too...
