All you could have done is walk away from her, yes she slapped you, just walk away and come back when you think she is sane enough and also report it, it’s domestic violence, just the way women report husband, husbands should learn how to report wives, not taking the law into their hands with result like this.
There is no coming back again or the both of you, she’s dead and you, before the law and society, you are a murderer and you will be jailed according to the law. Where does that leave the only child, who is the other victim of this.
Before you commit that crime borne out of anger or ego, think of the consequence.
If you have or you are struggling with anger issues, now is the time to go seek help.
