[Headline-ese] For some reason, this Salt Lake Tribune headline seems a bit, uh, light.
An (alleged) sociopath who (allegedly) asphyxiated his former girlfriend and (allegedly) stuffed her body in a crate inside the trunk of her car and (allegedly) kidnapped a 60-year-old mentally impaired woman in the process gets off being called an "ex-beau?"
Beau. I picture a guy in top hat, tails and spats. Someone who's all Fred Astaire, hoofing his way into Ginger Rogers' heart. Or what my Grandma Rose would have called a dandy. (Holly Mullen)
