While blogger Is That Legal? newly posts on stupid spouse-killers, I'm reminded of the story that long-time New Orleans sportscaster Vince Marinello is accused of turning his lowgrade OCD into a virtual confession. His estranged wife was, surveillance tapes showed, shot by a man wearing a hirsute disguise who rode off on a bike. Then authorties searched his FEMA trailer: "In the trailer, the sheriff said, they found a handwritten checklist of the alleged plans for the attack," reported the AP. A later story by UPI alleged more details of the to-do list:
There were meticulous checks beside each entry that included the words "mustache and beard," "bicycle" and "gun," .... There was even a reminder to discard the weapon, police alleged.
