This story is about a married woman who was committing adultery with five or six other men in her village. The men decided it would be better if they killed the woman rather than killing each other over her. The authorities discoevered the killers and sent them all to prison for murder. The moral of the story is that adulterers will eventually suffer the consequences of their infidelity.
