10/16/2001 Entry: "Coffee Can Kill You!"

ROME (Reuters) - An Italian man said Monday he had killed his 72-year-old wife after she made him a bad cup of coffee, Italian news agency ANSA reported.

"The coffee was disgusting. I drank a little then I picked up the cup and smashed it on the floor," the 84-year-old told prosecutors in Bari, on Italy's southern heel, the agency said.

A neighbor discovered the wife's body Sunday afternoon and alerted the police. The man was arrested on suspicion of murder. The man later confessed he had hidden the murder weapon -- a hammer -- and blood-sodden clothes he had worn when he killed her, ANSA said.

Yeesh. I promise I'm not that much of a coffee snob.

Good thing too, since it's usually yours truly who's making the coffee...

Justifiable homicide. 'Nuff said.

Is Marlin aware of your opinion on the matter, Ron? :-)
