    Viola Drath, slain Georgetown woman, had sought protection against husband, documents show
    Wait. It gets odder.
    The rest - the gay lover, for example - at Washington Post link above. A very sad story of a very interesting woman's demise.

    Tabloid? Of course it's in a tabloid too:

    91-year-old socialite killed in her Georgetown townhouse had sought
    protection from husband 44 years her junior 'who had gay lover'
    (Daily Mail)

    DC trial opens in case of slain journalist

    http://www.ktiv.com/story/24386674/dc-trial-opens-in-case-of-slain-journalist

    WASHINGTON (AP) - A German man who masqueraded as a well-connected Army general choked his elderly wife to death, searched online for escape plans and claimed to be entitled to part of the socialite's estate, a prosecutor said at the man's murder trial Tuesday.

    But Albrecht Muth's lawyer said during opening statements that his client is innocent and that prosecutors have no evidence linking him to the death of the 91-year-old victim.

    Charged with first-degree murder, Muth could face life in prison if convicted.

    "Albrecht Muth didn't kill his wife. The government has their theory but that's all it is - a theory," public defender Craig Hickein said. "And they can't prove that he did it because he didn't."........

    Muth, though absent from the trial, is able to follow the proceedings though an electronic hookup in court. He has been fasting intermittently - he says he's following the orders of the archangel Gabriel -and doctors say he is too frail to be brought to court. A judge ruled that Muth, who has resisted multiple urgings to resume eating and regain health, was intentionally making himself unavailable and that the trial could proceed without him.
