Malcolm Palmer, a 62 year old man, killed his wife on Monday for playing too much PlayStation. The couple had been married for 30 years and lived in Long Sutton, Lincolnshire. The console belonged to their 10 year old son who would play until midnight, when his wife, Carol Cannom who was 46 would pick it up and play until the morning. Mr. Palmer was forced to sleep on the sofa so that his wife could play the game in the bedroom with their 37" plasma TV. In court he stated that, "he was very unhappy about the amount of time she was playing on the PlayStation."On Monday evening he attacked her with two kitchen knives inflicting over 20 stab wounds to her upper torso. Their son overheard the attack and called the police, the husband apparently then calmly took the phone and stated, "I'm sorry. I think I've killed her." Mr. Palmer will be sentenced on Wednesday.

Thats the problem, people just don't get the hints and little notions that people give out. I'm sure the man mentioned on multiple occasions that he did not like what she was doing, not to mention him sleeping on the couch should have been a sign as well. Couple that with the kind of people who hold their emotions in (this guy) and you have a fit of rage on your hands...

Stories like this always make me laugh. I mean obviously for someone to get a bit stab happy on their partner, they must have some personality issues. The fact that the supposed trigger event is ridiculous just means it gets more attention.
