While murder has sadly become a way of life in the United States, and the rest of the world to boot, there are still some murders that always come as a shock no matter how jaded we think we are. When a husband or wife kills their spouse, it always comes as a bit more of a shock, because we assume those are people the husband or wife cared enough about that they would never do something so heinous. When that spouse killing individual turns out to be a celebrity, the killing is even more shocking. Despite that, there is an ever growing list of celebrities who have killed their spouses.
