Brazil 'ketchup' murder tale ends in court

Hit-man and would-be victim fell in love, leading to fabricated death and court charges against trio in Pindobacu.

    It is a tale of romance, treachery and ketchup, which could be the plot of a bad Hollywood movie, but it is real.

    When a Brazilian hit-man and his would-be victim accidentally fell in love, they decided to fake her death, leading to court charges against three individuals.

    Roger Wilkison reports on how Iranildes Aguiar became known as the "ketchup lady" in the small northeastern town of Pindobacu.
