Man kills wife for wanting to cuddle after sex
Christopher Offord murdered his wife, Dana Noser. He told investigators that his wife had been nagging him to come back to bed.
It never ceases to amaze me what human beings are capable of — especially someone like this shows us an example of the sanctity of marriage that needs protection.
A man who got angry with his wife because she wanted to cuddle after sex when what he really wanted to do was watch sports on television was sentenced to death for killing her with a claw hammer.
Christopher Offord, 30, was sentenced Wednesday by Circuit Judge Dedee Costello, who said the brutality of the crime outweighed any mental problems Offord may have had.
“The defendant struck his wife approximately 70 individual blows after spending a happy interlude with her,” the judge said. “Her desire to cuddle after sex does not justify the extremely violent, brutal response of the defendant.” Offord pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the 2004 slaying of Dana Noser, 40, at his apartment.
