A Christiansburg man accused of killing his wife is using Ann Landers'
advice column to gain national attention.
In a letter published today, Michael Knowles writes that he killed his wife,
Angie, because of an affair that started on the Internet.
"I am writing in the hope that you will let your readers know the Internet
can be a dangerous place to meet people," Knowles writes.
Landers, who claims 90 million readers, replies that Knowles was the source
"...The danger to your wife came from YOU, not the computer. Blaming the
Internet is a cop-out."
Knowles made similar claims in letters and local interviews last year.
His case is scheduled to go to trial in May.

The Roanoke Valley Drug Abuse Council and Blue Ridge Community services
sponsored the workshop.
Since Roanoke began its rental inspection program last fall, 40 percent of
the units have received a passing grade.
City inspectors started with buildings along Elm Avenue in October.
And in a report to members of council, city manager Bob Herbert says 65
units have received certificates of compliance since then.
79 were found to have violations... and one was condemned as unsafe and
unfit for occupancy.
The program was designed to improve living conditions and encourage good
maintenance of rental property.
Properties owners along Orange Avenue northwest, and Bullitt and Jamison
(JAM-i-sun) Avenues southeast are next in line.
Inspections will begin there in March.
