Excuses! Excuses!

Hey, at least this one is more creative than the old my-dog-ate-my-legal- homework.

But it is also a sad tale of a jailhouse romance gone south: Love on the rocks, you might say

Abdelhafid Rahmani is currently serving two life prison terms for murdering his first wife and her new husband. He then married a Deltona paralegal following a jailhouse courtship, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

First, there was wife No. 1 and No. 2. Same woman: Souad Bousserhan. They had divorced and remarried. She was still married to him when she married another man. Rahmani shot and killed them both in a jealous rage in their home near Winter Park in 1996.

Then came wife No. 3, Casilda Sanchez-Fernandez, a Deltona paralegal who married him following a jailhouse romance.

Rahmani wants to appeal his murder convictions, but in court Thursday he testified he missed the filing deadline because she hid from him all his case paperwork — something he must include with his appeal.

Get the sordid DUHtails at the Orlando Sentinel.
