Sounds like these poor children didn't really have any role model in their household. It is terrible that he killed her but she needed to leave and should not have been cheating with a former student less than half her age. You have to wonder how an affair like that even begins.

No one condones domestic violence, but most people nonetheless understand that certain actions are almost certain to push any ordinary person past the ability to deal with the situation in a polite manner. There is no longer any community backlash whatsoever for one who rends asunder his or her marriage and home, then people act surprised and outraged when the wronged spouse can't take any more.

More proof that often wives are indeed perceived as property. "If I can't have her, none can" It is a scary and unfortunately common perception. My heart aches for the children involved.

35 to life? How about "death by hanging" ? Even if his wife had an affair, so what? Just go, and leave her alone.

The affair was an escape from the abuse. Abusers make it difficult for the abused to get away. They are so controlling and manipulative.
