The passion that people have can make them do incredible things; the passion that a mother has for her children can make her do anything to defend them. At the same time, the passion that is evoked during an emotional relationship, can make a person feel very strongly for their partner, and when their such feeling is hurt, it can make them take extreme steps. This has led to many murders of passion in the recent past, with people feeling cheated by their partners taking the extreme step of either killing their partner or killing themselves. Well, read this article (link to article):
A man stabbed his girlfriend to death after she accidentally blurted out the name of another man as they made love. Gary Higgs, 44, flew into a rage when his girlfriend suddenly cried out: 'Chris!'. He stormed downstairs, grabbed a chef's knife and stabbed Joanne Kitchen once in the back and once in the chest.
Higgs, who admitted murder, was yesterday jailed for life and told he must serve a minimum of 15 years.
