A man has been jailed for life for stabbing his wife to death over a posting she made on the social networking site Facebook. Wayne Forrester, 34, told police he was devastated that his wife Emma, also 34, had changed her online profile to “single” days after he had moved out. The Old Bailey heard Forrester drove to her home in Croydon, south London, and attacked the mother-of-two. He stabbed her with a kitchen knife and a meat cleaver on 18 February. Forrester, who pleaded guilty to murder, was ordered to serve a minimum term of 14 years.
That “I am now single” aspect of Facebook has always seemed weird to me.
