The woman who killed her ex husband's avatar after he divorced her... virtually

A man divorced his online wife's avatar in "Maple Story", a Korean virtual world similar to "Second Life", and she, in her resulting anger, killed his character. The 43-year-old Japanese piano teacher's sudden divorce from her online husband in a virtual game world made her so angry that she logged on and killed his digital persona. The woman used login information she got from the 33-year-old office worker when their characters were happily married, and killed the character. The man complained to police when he discovered that his beloved online avatar was dead. The guy was so broken up about his dead character he called the police and had the woman arrested. She was charged with illegal access onto a computer and manipulating electronic data. If convicted, she could face a prison term of up to five years or a fine up to $5,000.
