10 Celebrities Who Killed Their Partners
We have all heard about celebrities having problems with the law but there are few who went over the board by actually killing people - not just ordinary ones - their spouses! Here are 10 of those celebrities who killed their partners.
10. Chris Benoit
Chris Benoit, a Canadian professional wrestler who was well known in his time, killed his wife and son on June 22, 2007 in a murder-suicide which took place at their home in Georgia. Two days later he committed suicide by hanging himself.
9. Earl Hayes
When you are a celebrity, everything you do finds its way to the spotlight. Earl Hayes did something in in 2014 that had nothing to do with music. The rising rapper first shot his wife Stephanie Mosley in their apartment and then killed himself, according to police. Stephanie Mosley was a professional dancer who had appeared on VH1's series, Hit the Floor.
8. Robert Blake
Robert Blake was first tried and acquitted in 2001 for the murder of his second wife Bonnie Lee Bakley. Later in November, 2005 he was found liable for the wrongful death of Bonnie Lee Bakley. However, another jury declared him responsible for Bakley's death, and he was required by the courts to pay $30 million to Bakley's children.
7. Michael Jace
Michael is an American actor who is well known for his work on the FX drama, The Shield. This man actually confessed shooting his wife, April Jace, on May 19, 2014. He was later charged for murder and convicted. This makes us wonder what happens to the fame and net worth of these celebrities once they do something so hideous. April Jace was an American masters track and field athlete.
