Facebook Husband Jailed for Life

31-year old Brian Lewis, who stabbed his common law wife to death after she changed her Facebook status to "single" was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. He must serve at least 14 years.

Lewis and girlfriend, 26-year old Hayley Jones, had been together for some 13 years and had four children together. Lewis stabbed her to death as she lie in a sleeping bag and two of their children listened to the attack from the top of the staircase. One of the children testified against his father, who had told friends and family he would kill his wife before losing her to an assumed suitor she was communicating with online.

Lewis later admitted he had no idea whether or not Jones was actually cheating on him or even had an online relationship with anyone.
