Who Knows Why?

Rafael Robb was arrested for killing his wife
. Every article makes a big deal about the fact that he was a game theory professor, but I doubt that any reasonable game theory solution (without some additional factor) would cause him to decide to commit the crime since he knew he would be the first suspect. It seems more likely that there was something besides avoiding a messy and costly divorce that would have raised the benefit to him. I suspect that Robb might have been guilty of domestic abuse; that would be consistent with the nature of the crime since the way his wife was beaten would have concealed any evidence of prior abuse.
