    Setting aside the killing of the 73-year-old husband part ...

    I wonder why someone undergoes a sex change and chooses an ambiguous name such as Chris.

    It took them eight paragraphs out of 15 before saying how the homicide was committed. It took them 11 before they mentioned the wife was a transsexual.

    The middle and last name made me smirk. Newton John. Fan of Songbird perhaps? (The movie, not the poster).

    You couldn't have screwed up a story much worse had you tried.

    I've seen the poster. The movie doesn't quite live up to the poster's promise.

    Oh, wait...

    The charge is "reckless homicide." As opposed to "responsible homicide," I suppose.
    I believe there's a law on the books in Virginia known as "malicious wounding." Is that the converse of "benevolent wounding"?
