Over the past few weeks, two internationally known sports figures were allegedly murdered by their lovers while they slept.
In Nashville, former Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair was allegedly murdered by his girlfriend, Sahel Kazemi, on July 4. She is said to have shot him four times while he slept, then turned the gun on herself, according to news reports.
A week later, Canadian boxing legend Arturo Gatti was found dead in a Brazilian apartment he was renting with his wife and their young son. Police have accused his wife, Amanda Rodriguez, of strangling Gatti as he slept in their bed on July 11.
