So, and affair gone bad?

According to WLOS today, Mrs. Chanin had an affair with Charles Ball. Sometimes, affairs come to hurt more than the two having an affair. My respects to Mr. Chanin and his family. May you find peace.

Freaky stuff. Too bad the old lady wasn't the one who died, given her affair, if this is true.

Well, suffice to say it wasn't the typical May-December affair...more like January-December.

Well, she will have to suffer for the rest of her life with the knowledge that she brought a murderer into her home. I hope she lives a long miserable life.

Why shouldn't it be upgraded? Another DA too lazy to prosecute?
I know! How about the headline:
"Beating victim dies; homicide charges possible"

Really? Just possible?

Very sad thought, that the wife did bring all this on!!! Of course she is not the one who beat and murdered a person, but yes, she is to be held somewhat responsable, if not by the courts then by her family..

So, if I understand you properly, you are saying that the equivalent of "The death penalty" should be given for having an affair? Sheesh! Whatever do you think would happen to the population of the US if such a thing were to occur?

That woman probably married that old man because of what he could give her financially. Of course, she is no spring chicken but much younger than he was. But if she just had to have a man seems she would have chosen someone other than that beady-eyed, ugly thing that beat the both of them up. I don't feel sorry for her because she sounds like an old slut.

Damn, with a name like this, it would be apparent an affair was going on. What an idiot.

You have a great point there Squidly. I think there would not be much more doing it with anyone, anywhere. Just a select few would stay coupled up, the rest would be dead. Wouldn't have to worry about over population.
