Man Paid to Have His Wife Killed Over Lack of Sex: Lawyers – Husband Also Had Hitman Kill the Man’s Pet Pug Dogs, Beat Dogs to Death With a Hammer
Basically, a lot of complementarian Christian men feel the same way this man, Edward Heck, does: they feel entitled to sex from their wives.
The erroneous biblical interpretations that lead men (and some women) to support “gender complementarianism” lead to these types of views about marriage, sex, and women.
I can see Christian persons like Lori Alexander (of “The Transformed Wife”), Mark Driscoll, John MacArthur, John Piper, Owen Strachan, Denny Burk, Douglas Wilson, and many members of “CBMW” defending this man’s actions and blaming the (murdered) wife.
(We also have problems with unmarried men, of whatever religious beliefs, who feel entitled to sex from any woman, and they go on murderous rampages when women refuse to date or to have sex with them).
The hired hit man not only killed the man’s wife, but one article also says that he “brutally murdered” the husband’s (who hired the hit man) pet dogs by beating them to death with a hammer – one article says that killing the dogs was also part of the plan by the husband – so the husband approved of the dogs being killed by the hit man.
I despise animal abusers, and yes, he and the husband should pay for killing the wife (obviously), but that both men also killed dogs means their death by the state should be very, very extra painful – perhaps shoving them alive, awake, into a wood chipper could be one possible solution to that.
This news story also goes to contradict the dating advice articles I used to see by Christians years ago that conveyed the notion that a single adult has to achieve some level of perfection or godliness or else God won’t send the person a spouse. If dirt bags like this loser can get married, anyone can – obviously if there is a deity, He is not expecting moral perfection or some other quality to be achieved before He permits people to marry.
Also note that contrary to Christian and secular conservative pro-marriage groups and persons – such as Al Mohler, Brad Wilcox, and Focus On the Family – that marriage does not make people more godly, loving, responsible, ethical, or loving.
Aaaannnnd… married sex is not a guarantee for great or frequent sex, as so many Christian sexual purity material insists. I am not against sexual purity, but I do think a lot of Christians have “over-promised” in this area.

A Pennsylvania husband who hired a hitman through a porn site to kill his wife, allegedly because she wasn’t sexually available enough, is now claiming “diminished mental capacity” at his trial for her murder.
Edward Heck, 56, paid Kenneth Wayne Smith $10,000 to kill his wife, Sonja Rowe-Heck, in August of 2018.
Smith and Heck met on Motherless, a site which hosts extreme fetish pornography and snuff videos. Smith had posted in the comment section to a video that he had a fetish for killing, and Heck replied, “How about my wife?”
(Link): According to local news, the two men had been conversing on social media for about 18 months before the planned murder.
Text messages reviewed by authorities included those in which Heck said he fantasized about someone raping and strangling his wife. In messages to Smith, Heck stated that he hated his wife, called her offensive names, and complained about the fact the two did not share a bedroom.
On the day of the murder, Heck brought Smith to his home and helped him hide in the cellar. While there, Smith brutally murdered Heck’s two dogs. At about 1:50 a.m. on August 16, Heck texted Smith saying, “the time has come.”
Sonja Rowe-Heck’s body was found the following day by her daughter.
Kenneth Smith pleaded guilty in January 2020 to first-degree murder and other charges, and confessed that he had hit Sonja with a hammer while she slept before slashing her throat. He was sentenced to life in prison, but died shortly after incarceration due to cancer-related illness.

Feb 4, 2022
Rymsza voiced concern Wednesday that jurors might be influenced to find his client guilty after they learn the horrific way Heck’s two pugs were killed with a hammer.
Heck is accused of paying Kenneth Wayne Smith $10,000 to kill his wife, Sonja Rowe Heck.
Smith pleaded guilty in January 2020 to first-degree murder and other charges, admitting he hit the sleeping woman twice on the head with a hammer and then slashed her throat.
He was sentenced to life in prison and died there last May from cancer.
First Assistant District Attorney Martin Wade argued against severance claiming killing the dogs was part of the conspiracy that supports the prosecution theory the murder was premediated.
He cited text messages in which Heck told Smith, “You have to strangle my dogs.”

Heck’s two pugs were killed with a hammer in the basement of his Williamsport home right before the slaying.
The defense argued the two counts of aggravated cruelty to animals should be severed because the deaths of canines would have a strong determination on Heck’s guilt on other counts.
Brown found the killing of the dogs is “inextricably entwined” with the other crimes. Jurors will not be shown pictures of their corpses.
Based on conversations between Heck and Smith, killing the dogs was part of their plan to kill Sonja Heck, the judge concluded.
…Wade said he also will present Aug. 16 and 17, 2018, text messages from Heck’s phone in which he was seeking female escorts for sex and other services while staying at hotels in Ohio and Indiana after his wife’s murder.
