Butter Murder: this time, it's not just your arteries.
In this particular case, though, the weapon was butter:
A Sicilian couple thought they had the perfect weapon to get rid of her ex-husband -- a slab of butter which would melt after they asphyxiated him, the Corriere della Sera newspaper reported Saturday.
Unlike in Dahl's story, where the murder weapon was consumed undetected, traces of butter remained in the victim's airway, alerting authorities to the plot.
