Site: Facebook

Date: Feb. 18, 2008

Backstory: Wayne Forrester wasn't fond of his wife Emma changing her Facebook status from "married" to "single" a few days after he moved out. Drunk and high on cocaine, the Heavy Goods Vehicle driver beat his wife, tore chunks of hair from her head, and repeatedly stabbed her in the head and neck with a kitchen knife and meat cleaver. Police found him sitting on his porch covered in blood.

Punishment: Pleading guilty to murder reduced his sentence to a minimum 14-year bid.
