(AP) When Susan Kuhnhausen returned home from work one day earlier this month, she encountered an intruder wielding a claw hammer. After a struggle, the 51-year-old nurse fended off her attacker by strangling him with her bare hands. Neighbors praised the woman for her bravery, and investigators said they believed the dead man, Edward Dalton Haffey, was burglarizing Kuhnhausen's home. But after an investigation, police now say the intruder Kuhnhausen strangled was apparently a hit man hired by her estranged husband, Michael James Kuhnhausen Sr., to kill her.Apparently, her husband was another believer in "Till Death Do Us Part."
So many who advocate for the absolute sanctity of marriage either want to ignore the horrific things one spouse can do to the other or they just consider it the price some spouses must pay to uphold a greater good.
