Woman Accused Of Murdering Husband Allegedly Searched 'How To Kill Someone And Not Get Caught'

The woman claimed her husband had been shot to death by an intruder.

You can Google anything, even how to get away with murder. According to People, a Texas woman allegedly searched for how to kill and get away with killing her husband.

Sandra Louise Garner, 55, from Maypearl, Texas, was charged with killing her 42-year-old husband Jon after authorities went through her browser history and found "how to kill someone and not get caught" on a seized device.

On January 2, Garner called 911 and claimed "she was awakened that night by two gunshots and saw a masked male holding a gun and flashlight inside her residence," reported the Star-Telegram. According to Garner, the masked man said he would not hurt her, and his only issue was with her husband.

“Ms. Garner told investigators that the intruder told her he was not there to harm her. Ms. Garner said the perpetrator told her he held a grudge against her husband because of work-related matters,” Maypearl Police Department Chief Boyd Norton said. “Ms. Garner said she was instructed to open their home safe and gave the intruder approximately $18,000."

She said the intruder took the money and told her to go to the bathroom and "count to 100" while he made an escape. She said he threatened to kill her if he heard police sirens.

As the Daily Light of Waxahachie reported, Garner's telling of events unraveled after multiple searches of the couple's home revealed that the bullets used to kill Jon allegedly matched those found inside a .38-caliber pistol located in Garner's car.

Authorities also seized multiple electronic devices and put them through forensic analysis. That's when they saw Garner's browser history with an internet link related to “how to kill someone and not get caught," according to the Daily Light.

Garner has been charged with the murder of her husband, with her bail set at $2 million. It is unclear at this time if she has an attorney who can speak on her behalf.
