Chiropractor Suspected of Killing Fifth Wife Charged With Capital Murder
Some of us cannot even get spouse #1, this article says this dude has SIX and apparently, allegedly, murdered the first five (or four or whatever, read the article yourself), and for money (life insurance). What a jackhole.
Also: serves to prove married people are not more mature, godly, or ethical than singles. No they are not.
And: Christians say that you have to be perfect before God will send you a spouse. This guy allegedly murdered FIVE wives. I’ve murdered zero people.
If God granted spouses based on good behavior, I should be married to a (Link): Hugh Jackman clone by now (he’s in a new movie, by the way, X Men Days of Future Past).

The husband of an Alabama woman, whose family suspected for years was her killer, is now in a fight for his own life after being charged with capital murder in connection to her 2010 death.
Michael Wohlschlaeger, 62, was indicted by a Baldwin County grand jury May 19 for allegedly killing his fifth wife, Shirley Seitz, 59. She died of blunt force trauma to the head March 1, 2010.
Wohlschlaeger had previously told authorities he found her unresponsive in their Loxley, Alabama, home after she had been ill for weeks and had fallen down the stairs.
The Alabama state Attorney General Luther Strange announced the murder charge Tuesday in a news release, which refers to the indictment charging that Wohlschlaeger, a chiropractor who now lives in Pensacola, Florida, with his now-sixth wife, killed Seitz for “monetary gain.”
Wohlschlaeger has repeatedly denied he was responsible for Seitz’s death and has said he believes she fell accidentally. If convicted in Seitz’s death, Wohlschlaeger could face the death penalty or life in prison without parole.
… Seitz’s family has long suspected her death wasn’t an accident and filed a wrongful death action against Wohlschlaeger last year, but the civil suit was dismissed because of an earlier estate settlement, in which the family agreed not to sue him.
“I didn’t like him at all,” Myrtle Thomas, Seitz’ mother, told ABC News’ “20/20” at the time. “I just have to admit that.”
Shirley Seitz’s previous marriage had recently ended in divorce when she met Wohlschlaeger, according to her family,
Seitz, then 55, and Wohlschlaeger, then 54, were married Feb. 11, 2006, just three months after first meeting. The two had both been down the aisle four times previously.
Wohlschlaeger’s alleged financial problems troubled Seitz’ family because one of Seitz’ former husbands, Gene Seitz, had died and left her with an inheritance of $1 million.
Four years into their marriage, Seitz’s health took a turn for the worse, her family said. In an audio interview recorded with police investigators, Wohlschlaeger said that Seitz had been ill for weeks, including food poisoning and thyroid problems.
When Sietz’s mother and brother, Rickie Thomas, drove five hours to see Shirley in February 2010, Seitz was so sick that she was unable to get up and open the door, her family said, claiming that Wohlschlaeger told them Seitz might have fallen down the stairs while he was out.
Wohlschlaeger said he found Seitz unresponsive at their home March 1, 2010. She was taken to South Baldwin Hospital in Foley, Alabama, where she was pronounced dead.
