You are dumb and stupid; and any one who is dumb and stupid is also known as an idiot. And you are.

If you pick up a fight with some1 today; are you not guilty if the person dies a week later?

What crap of defence is “he never intended to cause internal injuries”?

So the news concludes that the husband killed his wife without any investigations having been conducted? The wife inspite of having been found with internal injuries and not dead immediately after the causes of the injuries could lead to a very rigorous legal battle if the diffendant could be well represented by a well learned Diffence Lawyer. My concern is that newspapers rash to conclusions hence raising public perception.
