A Sicilian couple thought they had the perfect weapon to get rid of her ex-husband — a slab of butter which would melt after they asphyxiated him, the Corriere della Sera newspaper reported Saturday.
But a post-mortem found remains of the butter in the airways of Calogero Lo Cocco and the pair were unmasked, the paper said.
The milk of human kindness appears to have curdled in these two. I’m sorry, I can’t seem to churn up any more to say about this. That ends up shortening the post.
Sadly, the original story does not appear in the English language version of the paper.
