    My goodness. when is this madness going to end? day in and day out we are hearing more and more about people killing their spouses or domestic partners.

    I will never understand the need to kill someone. If you're not happy in a relationship, just walk away, end the marriage/relationship, why do we need to resort to such violence? What good does it do anyone, now he's in jail, the family and friends of the victim will never live in peace of what he has done. I just hope they didn't have children together. My prayers for her family during a very difficult time in their lives.

    If he is found guilty - the death penalty.

    Anyone found guilty of killing someone the claim to love should be put to death themselves.

    This is terrible! So many stories of people being killed by their partners. It is getting too predictable. My heart really goes out to all the family and friends that are affected by these tragedies.
