Inspector strangled wife when she learned of his secret £54,000 loan

Greater Manchester officer Darren McKie, 43, (right and inset) killed Leanne, 39, a detective constable in the same force (together left and centre with their three children), when she found out he had secretly been taking out huge loans in her name. Her body was found in Poynton Lake, Cheshire, around eight miles from their home in Wilmslow, on September 29 last year. Chronicled in posts on social media, the apparently perfect middle-class lifestyle of McKie and his wife Leanne included dinners at top restaurants, £4,500 holidays abroad and a £435,000 luxury home with expensive appliances and fittings. A pathologist told the court Mrs McKie suffered injuries to her neck akin to a karate chop, although he said a prolonged period of strangulation actually killed her. McKie initially denied killing his wife and blamed a mystery man. However, faced with overwhelming evidence he admitted manslaughter half way through the trial, but continued to deny murder, saying he never intended to cause her serious harm.

He won't MOO that again! Man tries to break up a fight between two bulls (but it doesn't go well) 

This man received an unwelcome reward for trying to referee a bull fighting match in the middle of the street in India. The referee was hurled into the air by one of the bulls who was mid-way through a fight against his rival. In a show of strength two bulls began to lock horns in the road in Korba, Chhattisgarh when the man was pushed into the scuffle by another.
