Woman kills ex Maple Story husband, gets arrested

Maple StoryHell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Especially if that woman is your virtual ex-wife.

In Tokyo, a 43-year-old woman was so angry over a sudden divorce from her Maple Story hubby that she logged on to his account and deleted him in cold, virtual blood. "I was suddenly divorced, without a word of warning. That made me so angry," the official quoted her as telling investigators and admitting the allegations.

When the 33-year-old office worker realized his avatar had been murdered in cold blood, he contacted the authorities, who then arrested the woman on suspicion of illegally accessing a computer and manipulating electronic data. If convicted, she could face up to five years in prison, or a fine of $5,000.

So for those millions still playing Maple Story who are grinding to complete your wedding quests, remember: only marry digital avatars you truly know, because if you ask for a divorce they may murder you while you’re logged off.
