Well, here's one way to handle it:
Jamshedpur, India: Rintu Karmakar, 60, flew into a rage when he discovered wife Monu, 55, hadn't prepared a meal or done any of the house work and was fast asleep in bed. He told police that he first tried to cut her head off with an axe while she slept but that had failed so instead he beheaded her with a scythe. He then calmly cooked and ate his own meal before throwing his wife's head in the back of his truck and driving to the police station to make a full confession.
She's 55, probably with no kids in the house any more, and he did this? Possibly she was coming down with flu, and he overreacted? Or maybe she slept in once too often.
