It even has third-act plot twists:

PORTLAND, Ore. – When Susan Kuhnhausen

returned home from work one day earlier this month, she encountered an

intruder wielding a claw hammer. After a struggle, the 51-year-old

nurse fended off her attacker by strangling him with her bare hands.

praised the woman for her bravery, and investigators said they believed
the dead man — Edward Dalton Haffey — was burglarizing Kuhnhausen’s

But after an
investigation, police now say the intruder Kuhnhausen strangled was
apparently a hit man hired by her estranged husband — Michael James
Kuhnhausen Sr. — to kill her.
