A 43-year-old Japanese woman was so angry that her avatar's online husband divorced her in the role-playing game Maple Story, that she logged into his account and "killed" him. The woman carried out the virtual murder in mid-May and was arrested on Wednesday for illegally accessing the computer of her online hubby's creator. If convicted, she could face a prison term of up to five years or a fine up to $5,000. The woman did not plot any revenge in the real world. [MSNBC]
