Life Imitates CSI: Miami, Again

| No Comments

Last time it was Money Plane; this time it's Nailed:

A woman, who was just about to sign her divorce papers, is found shot to death with a nail gun in her soon-to-be ex-husband's new home.

Dateline Nevada City, CA:

NEVADA CITY, Calif. -- A California man has been charged with murdering his estranged wife by shooting her in the head with a nail gun.

Richard Williams was arrested Friday after spending five weeks in a hospital for nail gun wounds to his chest and abdomen. [emphasis added]
It was supposed to be a murder-suicide, but it appears that Williams had some problems aiming the nail gun when it was pointed his way. Funny how that works.

But I think the best part of the story is the fact that he was arrested after spending five weeks in the hospital recovering. Why? Money, baby:

Officials said Williams wasn't arrested immediately after the October 22 incident because Nevada County would have been at least partly responsible for his hospital bills. Instead, guards were stationed outside his hospital room 24 hours a day, waiting for him to recover.
Justice ain't cheap.
