Recently, a Stafford Crown Court in the United Kingdom found Edward Richardson, 41, guilty of stabbing to death his 26 year-old estranged wife, Sarah Richardson. The Crown Prosecution Service stated that “Richardson became enraged when Sarah changed her marital status on Facebook to single and decided to go and see her as she was not responding to his messages.“ Following the attack, Richardson attempted to take his own life but failed. The Court sentenced Mr. Richardson to life in prison, with a minimum 17-year term.
