The suspect wanted the victim to die horrifically though in a beating you only feel the first maybe 2nd blows then you hear crunching I have been through it never got my neck broken in a beating though..To bad we will probably never know why?

Yikes, being beaten to death by your lover. Now that IS personal! I wonder if there was a past history of physical abuse like you hear so often about relating to men beating women. So very sad.
