Verb: To incriminate or blame somebody for something.

I stole his shovel first. He used it every day, turning soil for this spring’s garden beds. I made sure to wear gloves. His prints only.

One quick whack to my wife’s skull is all it took. Thud. The sound of her hitting the floor, and dirt hitting her body. Maybe I buried her alive. Maybe not. Who knows? Who cares.

This year, my garden will be the best. Shame I couldn’t use them as fertilizer.
