Rickie La Touche Suffocated Wife to Death After She Destroyed His Star Wars Toys

Strange things are afoot in Manchester, England.

30-year-old Rickie La Touche has been found guilty of suffocating his wife, Pornpilai Srisroy, 28, after a series of arguments which led to her destroying his collection of Star Wars toys (nay, memorabilia!) in April.

Shortly afterward, La Touche went to his mother confessing he had murdered his wife.

According to the Telegraph, Srisroy had promised to make La Touche's life "hell" after a series of arguments and threatened to return to her native Thailand.
