Double Indemnity Laws

I found her sitting on the floor, staring at the body. I approached carefully, since the gun was still in her hand.

“Honey, you-“

She waved the gun at me.

“I told you he was alive, that he’d framed me. But it’s fine, that double indemnity law means I can’t go to jail for killing him, ‘again’.”

I chose my words carefully.

“Firstly, it’s called double jeopardy laws, and second, that only applies for the exact same crime. This is a new one, so…”

She looked at me, then slowly lifted the gun to her head.

I didn’t stop her.
