    • It was her human right not to have to put up with his assaults but to kill him and then burn his body, that went beyond what the law would deem to be justifiable homicide. If she had killed him in self-defense, that would have been a different matter but to burn his body, well…


      • Oh dear 😮 That’s horrible! See? I need to learn to understand the FULL story, before jumping to conclusions.

        Thank you for clarifying.

        I thought she only hit him, like a slap.
        I had no clue she killed someone with such horror.
        You can’t be humane and do all that to someone, even if they have hurt you.
        Possessed sounds like an excuse. But I guess it’s close enough to dark hatred that births wickedness.

      • I thought that I should include the link just in case people wanted to read the full story. Yes, what she did was extreme. The first hit would have been enough. I don’t know what the outcome would have been. He might have charged her with attacking him or something. Who knows but it would have been better than bludgeoning him to death and then burning him.


    • Dear Rochelle,

      It seems like she had had enough, based on the manner in which she killed him and disposed of the body. If he had left her alone, he wouldn’t have met his demise.
