KILLING AT CHRISTMAS TIME - BLACK WIDOW
NOW HELD WITHOUT BAIL IN LOCAL JAIL

It was no ordinary "walk in the park" for unsuspecting Navy reservist Paul Berkley, 46, of Raleigh N.C. on Christmas morning.  Waiting for him, gun in hand, was his cheating wife's "toy-boy" lover and another teenage accomplice. 

Berkley was shot dead, and his no-good spouse called 911, sobbing that she had been wounded.  The tubby wife had indeed a slight injury in the arm, but her hubby lay dead on the trail with a gunshot to the head.

Monique Berkley, 26, screwed up her plan and made cops suspicious when she took all of three minutes to tell police someone else besides her was shot.  The dispatcher heard a man groaning in agony in the background and asked the "black widow" who that was.  It was only then that the scheming woman admitted her husband had been gunned down.

"Who shot him?" asked the 911 operator.

"I dunno," said Dumbo, sealing her fate.

Neighbors told MilitaryCorruption.com that Monique had been "entertaining" 18 year-old Andrew Canty in her home only days after her husband shipped out for Bahrain.  When the Navy man returned on holiday leave, Canty was nowhere to be seen.  But the plot was set in motion, and cops said Monique wanted to be rid of her older husband and collect on his substantial SGLI (Servicemans Group Life Insurance).

Now all that Monique will be "collecting" is fleas in her jail cell, as she awaits what promises to be a sensational trial in the cold-blooded slaying of her husband.
