Apparently we should all think twice about changing channels without permission. I will for a little bit after reading about crazy Arkansas man Tony Thomas stabbing his wife to death for switching off a football game in November.
According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Thomas, who has a prior criminal history, was out having a smoke when he returned to no football on the telly. He asked his wife, Elke Thomas, what the score of the game before a loud argument broke out. That eventually led to the fatal stabbing — details from the report:

When Tony Thomas, 58, came back inside Nov. 19 and saw the channel had been changed, he asked his wife, Elke Thomas, what the score was of the football game he’d been watching, according to a court document.
Thomas told police his wife began yelling at him and an argument ensued. He got a knife from the wall and began stabbing her, according to an affidavit from Anthony Counts, a detective with the Lonoke County sheriff’s office.
“He claimed he’d blacked out and when he ‘came to,’ he was over her with a knife in his hands,” according to the affidavit.
Immediately after the stabbing, Tony Thomas called the sheriff’s office and asked the dispatcher for a “meat wagon and police” because he’d just killed his wife, according to the affidavit.

Thomas was charged with capital murder on Monday.
Arkansas Matters notes Thomas’ wife had a protection order request denied in October because of a lack of proof.
