It makes sense…

A prospective juror in a Dallas District Court was surprised by the
definition of voluntary manslaughter given the panel:

“an intentional killing that occurs while the defendant is under
the immediate influence of sudden passion arising from an
adequate cause, such as when a spouse’s mate is found in a
‘compromising position.'”

“See, I have a problem with that passion business,” responded the jury
candidate. “During my first marriage, I came in and found my husband in
bed with my neighbor. All I did was divorce him. I had no idea that I
could have shot him.”

She wasn’t selected for the jury.
