tác giả bài "Giết chồng như thế nào?" đã bị kết án bắn chết chồng 4 năm trước... :D
A jury (ban hội thẩm, hội thẩm đoàn, hội đồng xét xử) in Portland has convicted (kết án, tuyên bố có tội) a self-published (tự xuất bản) romance novelist — who once wrote an essay titled "How to Murder Your Husband" — of fatally (chí tử, một cách chết người) shooting her husband four years ago.

Crampton Brophy testified during the trial that her presence near the culinary school on the day of her husband's death was mere coincidence (trùng hợp, tình cờ) and that she had parked in the area to work on her writing...
