I was talking with someone the other day and I'm not sure how the subject was brought up, but this person told me it was legal to shoot and kill someone if you catch them in the bid with your wife or husband. I tried to tell them they were wrong but they kept insisting they were right. LOL I know this is silly, but does anyone care to share the facts on this. So I can prove my point LOL!
I'm not 100% certain about the laws in the U.S. but I also believe you can shoot someone under those circumsatances and it might come under "crime of passion" meaning "in that state of mind" what else could you do? Anyway, isnt it true that you can shoot a burglar? Sort of the same thing ..... isn't it?

Yea but a crime of passion is still a crime, you just get some sympathy and maybe a lesser sentence because of the state of mind you were in. But a Burglar is someone whom froced themselves into the home uninvited, someone throwing it you your "wife" was invited in.

503.055 Use of defensive force regarding dwelling, residence, or occupied vehicle -- Exceptions.
(1) A person is presumed to have held a reasonable fear of imminent peril of death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another when using defensive force that is intended or likely to cause death or great bodily harm to another if:
(a) The person against whom the defensive force was used was in the process of unlawfully and forcibly entering or had unlawfully and forcibly entered a dwelling, residence, or occupied vehicle, or if that person had removed or was attempting to remove another against that person's will from the dwelling, residence, or occupied vehicle; and
(b) The person who uses defensive force knew or had reason to believe that an unlawful and forcible entry or unlawful and forcible act was occurring or had occurred.
(2) The presumption set forth in subsection (1) of this section does not apply if:
(a) The person against whom the defensive force is used has the right to be in or is a lawful resident of the dwelling, residence, or vehicle, such as an owner, lessee, or titleholder, and there is not an injunction for protection from domestic violence or a written pretrial supervision order of no contact against that person;

that clearly states,it would be illegal!!!100% murder(1) the cheating spouse invited the other person into home or hotel room, so they had a legal right to be there (2)the spouses cheater posed no immediate physical threat to the catching spouse(3)nor could the spouse say they feared for their life because of their spouse cheating.if you want to get down right technical on it,if the catching spouse pulled a gun on or threatened the cheating spouse and the other person then the cheaters could then defend themselves legally with physical or deadly force depending on the circumstances of the threat.morally and ethically it would be looked upon as wrong,but legally has more merit.

We are talking about how it is interpreted in an American court of law. "Crime of passion" is a catch-all phrase which denotes a certain crime with mitigating circumstance - that is a debatable reaction to a certain incident. So too is the "punishment" of such a crime. If it is deemed a crime but mitigating circumstance are such that the trial itself is "time served" then it officially entered into the ledger as crime and punishment carried out. Even though you might not spend an hour behind bars.

So, had you comitted a crime. Yes. Were you convicted for a crime? Yes. Did you recieved sentencing? Yes. But for all intents and purposes you weren't really held responsible.

In Sweden, if you intentionally shoot or kill someone there is no "time served" for committing a crime of passion or of jealousy. Murder is murder.
