Doctor found guilty of wife's Valentine's Day bludgeoning: February 14, 2001, ended in horror when John Hamilton, a 52-year-old obstetrician-gynecologist, called 911 to report he found his wife, Susan, lying on the bathroom floor in a pool of blood. The doctor’s wife has been strangled with a necktie, hit with a blunt object, and had her face slammed onto floor in the master bathroom of the couple’s Oklahoma City home. Police became suspicious of the doctor after discovering his marriage wasn’t as happy as it seemed and when they learned his wife was considering asking for a divorce. Hamilton was eventually charged with his wife’s murder. At trial, a blood spatter pattern expert who testified on behalf on the defense told the court under cross-examination that blood found on the doctor’s sleeve was consistent with Hamilton beating his wife over the head with a blunt instrument, according to court documents. The jury took less than two hours to convict Hamilton of first-degree murder. He is currently serving a life sentence at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary.
