GABE WATSON – Honeymoon killer.  Is he a  Lover, Husband or Monster.  Does he merit protection by the state?

Just released today from prison ‘honeymoon killer’ Gabe Watson served a measly 18 months term for the murder of his wife while the couple were on their diving honeymoon in the Whitsundays, Australia. Christina Mae Watson, also known as Tina was a 26-year- old American woman from Alabama, USA who died in 2003, only eleven days into her marriage. Six years later, her husband, Gabe Watson was returned to Austalia to be tried and found guilty of manslaughter. He was sent to prison. Just six weeks later he appealed and six months was added to his sentence bringing it to eighteen months. Today he was released but is being protected by the justice system in Australia from deportation because they will not return him to the U.S.A. while there is any chance that he may face the death penalty in his home state Alabama.
Does this man deserve protection?
His new bride had her life cut off in its prime without any reference to any court of law. This man is a conniving monster who cut a young life drastically short, deprived a family of a valued member and of the future hope of the next generation.
Would the marriage have ended in even worse violence had it proceeded?
This man thought he had ownership over his wife and her life. He took her future into his own hands without any respect for hers.
Men who think they own their wives are bound to do deplorable things if the person they control in any way rejects their propriety. ‘Lover Husband Father Monster, A Novel in Two Voices’ traces one such relationship from the heady days of romance to the final ugly conclusion.
The tune is the same, just the words are different in a compelling read to the end.
