Husband hacked wife to death with meat cleaver after she changed Facebook status to single
Man and woman married for 15 years. Man leaves home. 4 days later woman changes her facebook profile to single. Man deals with this in a rational and calm way by getting drunk and high and killing her.
A pretty tragic and fucked up case.
I think the most tragic thing here is that what I understand from the article is that he will be in jail for 14 years (the minimum). He should be there for good. Throw away the key I say. Give him hard labour for the rest of his life. What a waste of skin.

Isn't revenge great

Completely appropriate. Thanks.
Jon Worden, what a load of rubbish....there are 2 more over-riding factors in this case...firstly and illegal drug called cocaine and secondly PRIDE...oh and a third one, these social networking websites.
This can not be blamed solely on alcohol!

Only 14 years? How in God's name can this mean 'Life'? He will be out after a life of luxury way before this.
Where do the Judiciary arrive at the decision that a murderer should serve no less than foresaking his own life for commiting such a crime?
Oh, I forgot. The do-gooding PC delusionists rule our lives and control what is 'best for us all'.

It's all the PC Brigade's fault you know.
Revenge is oh so much better than rehabilitation.
I also quite like the "life of luxury". He'll be at least 48 years old with a criminal record for murder. Not exactly the ideal CV seller is it.
Some are awake.
Why blame a social site that brings a bit of brightness to millions of people? This happened because he was an animal and could have just as easily occurred if she had told a friend of the split and he heard about it.

Jerry - why can't people understand that your minimum sentence is when you apply for parole, which a murderer is very unlikely to get...he's not going to just be freed after 14 years!
