OK - Cathy Bartlett, 57, murdered in her Bethany home, 8 Jan 2011
Bethany man jailed in wife's death says wife caught him watching pornography
Reginald Scott Bartlett, 58, told Bethany police he “snapped” when Cathy Bartlett, 57, caught him watching pornography Saturday at their home.
Police were called about 6:35 p.m. to the couple's home at 7600 NW 25 and found Reginald Bartlett rolling around on the living room floor groaning, officer Angelo Orefice wrote in the affidavit. Cathy Bartlett was partially clothed on the floor with stab wounds to much of her body. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Reginald Bartlett was taken to a hospital due to his “distraught demeanor” and was interviewed Sunday following his release, according to the affidavit. Bartlett told police he was “a sick individual” and that he was addicted to pornography.
He told officers his wife came into the computer room, saw he was looking at pornography, slapped him and began to yell at him about a bank statement because she thought he was ordering pornography, Orefice wrote. Bartlett said he snapped, grabbed a knife and stabbed her repeatedly.

From your link:
"Bartlett took the knife used in the attack along with a computer and his clothes and put them in a black bag, which he threw into Lake Overholser, Orefice wrote. After that, he went to a sporting goods store to look at golf equipment and then to Southern Nazarene University to watch a basketball tournament before returning to the home to call 911."
This guy was sure nonchalant about the whole thing! This world is so bizarre.

The couple were to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary on January 31st.
The son can not believe this happened. He has never saw his dad lose his temper.
A friend and co-worker of Cathy's can't believe it. He is not a mean spirited person and she never heard of a single problem in their marriage.
Welllllllllllllllll he obviously finally lost his temper since he got snagged looking at porn. No doubt he was racking up charges. he got slapped and bugged out.
