Man Kills Wife After Sex To Watch Sports On TV

PANAMA CITY, Fla. -- A Florida sports fan has been sentenced to death for killing his wife after sex.

Christoper Offord got angry because his wife wanted to cuddle after they had sex -- but he wanted to watch sports on television. She died after being struck dozens of times with a claw hammer.

Offord later confessed to a bartender at a sports bar, and eventually pleaded guilty to first-degree murder.

In imposing the death sentence, the judge said the brutality of the crime outweighed any of the defendant's possible mental problems.

Offord did not speak in court, but admitted in a jailhouse interview that he deserved to die.

Talk about yellow journalism...they didn't even mention that it was fourth-and-goal in the final two minutes with no timeouts remaining!

The cuddling, I mean, not the anger.

This guy's in luck! Where he's going there's lot's of television and also there are more adherents of the violence after sex philosophy. He should feel right at home!

Great call. It should be the same in all murders.

I agree. He's obviously way too obsessed with sports, but the viciousness of the crime was too great to declare a mental problem.

Maybe we'll see a trend.

"A Florida sports fan has been sentenced to death for killing his wife after sex."

So what would the penalty have been if he killed her BEFORE sex?

Can we hold off on his execution until this game is over?
