The details of the case against Daniel Watson, 31, of Birmingham, Alabama, in Australia are beginning to emerge. Watson is accused of killed his new wife Christina Mae Watson, 26, on their honeymoon while diving on a shipwreck.
According to Christina Mae Watson’s father, Tommy Thomas, Daniel Watson asked his wife to increase her insurance and name him as a beneficiary before their honeymoon. Now, prosecutors are alleging that Watson turned off her air supply once they dove into the water.
Daniel Watson is an experienced diver and she was a novice. They alleged that after she sank to the seabed, he then turned it back on.

The picture snapped of the two divers above captures the chilling moment.
One would expect a civil lawsuit for wrongful death to follow.
