From The Telegraph

Din Mohammad was sentenced to 20 years in prison two years ago for killing his mother-in-law, and his wife's brother and sister in the northern province of Samangan.

Mohammad's wife, whose name has not been disclosed, visited him in jail in the provincial capital Aybak on Monday and was found dead in a small private room used for inmates to see their wives, police said.

The name, by the sweet bye and bye, of my erstwhile adulteress was "Salome" and when she did her seven veils thang, I was reminded of how much my Abrahamic faith honors John the Baptist as a prophet - just like Jesus - and before one could say, "Abra-Cadaver," it was her head that was, as it were, hoist by its own petard onto a prison platter.
A Better Man Than Gunga,
Din Mohammed
