Brockton man accused of vow to kill wife

BROCKTON — Jean Michel Beaulieu and Florence Beaulieu exchanged vows at their wedding in 1999, and a prosecutor said Wednesday that the husband recently made another vow: He promised to kill his wife, rather than sign divorce papers.

Jean Michel Beaulieu fulfilled that promise last month, prosecutors said, beating his estranged wife to death in her home here.
