Every day six people are murdered in the United States by a spouse or intimate partner. The stories of killer spouses capture the public's attention—we wonder how such normal and seemingly happy people can go over the edge.

But when that line crosses over into murder something has gone terribly wrong, and we all ask the same question: How could this have happened?
