British Newlywed, Michael Roberts, Guilty Of Murdering New Wife After She Discovers Multiple Affairs

Liverpool, United Kingdom (The Weekly Vice) - Michael Roberts, a 26-year-old British newlywed was sentenced to life in prison after he reportedly had an affair with two women, strangled his newly minted wife and then claimed it was a sex game gone horribly wrong.

According to Liverpool authorities, Roberts strangled 25-year-old Victoria Roberts, his wife of five months, after he reportedly had an affair with two other women he met at the work place. He became enraged when Victoria Roberts learned of the affairs and decided to email the women on Facebook.

Investigators say Roberts strangled his wife with a cord from her wedding dress, then wrapped her body in duct tape and hid her in their garage under a comforter. He then sent text messages to her friends and family from her phone, attempting to cover up the murder.

Roberts tried to convince family and friends that his new wife had left him for another man, however an investigation was launched when family members failed to locate the woman. When her body was finally found, Roberts attempted to flee, but was quickly arrested.

Roberts told detectives that his wife passed away while they were playing sex game that involved mild strangulation, however, marks on her neck indicated that she had been strangled with a ligature from the woman's gown and that Roberts had used extreme force when he choked her to death.

Roberts was booked into jail and charged with murder. He was found guilty and was sentenced to life in prison with 17 mandatory years served.

The judge in the case concluded sentencing with a few thoughts of his own:

"No words can adequately express the terrible effect her early death had upon her family and friends," said Justice Royce. "You cheated on her and deceived her during your relationship, before you married and throughout your short marriage. She deserved much better than you.
