He killed her with more than 150 small cuts to her neck.
She would come back and haunt him.

He: HAM? Her: HAF? Her=she? Did he intend to make the cuts? Did he intend to kill her? Did she intend to haunt him? Supernatural phenomena relevant? Haunting thoughts or memories? An infection? Were the >150 cuts made within a period of seconds? Minutes? Hours? Days? Weeks? Years? Decades? Did they hurt? Bleed? Did blood loss kill her? Poison? Venom? An infection? Suicide? Nerve damage? Cold? Heat? Electric shock? Drowning? Suffocation? Strangulation? Was he a surgeon? Were the cuts primarily to her skin? Is this a true story?

Is the instrument(s) used to make the cuts relevant? Were all the cuts made with the same instrument? With the same type of instrument? By a living thing or things?

Did he cut her actual body? Pictures? WAG: did he cut a film of her into lots of little bits, cutting each picture frame by her neck? Did he project a film wrongly, cuting her head off? Use a film camera wrongly, only recording her from the neck down? Are her breasts relevant? Did he commit a crime? A murder? Was he punished for what he did?

Did she die shortly after the cuts were made? A long time after?
Is the phrase "death by a thousand cuts" relevant?

Kill: make not alive anymore? End? Remove? Delete? Make non-functional? Turn off? Reboot? Was she in the same universe has him? Did he cut all references ro her from a work? Did he cut paper? Plastic? Digital cutting relevant? Cutting the acting when recording a movie scene?

Did he make the cuts? Is "making the cuts" synonymous with cutting? Are they physical cuts that separate two previously connected areas of a material? Are they injuries? Did he regret it because he got injured? Lost money? Lost reputation? Lost love?

Did anyone see the cuts? Did anyone hide the cuts? Censorship relevant? Bleeping? Mass media? Text? Did it take you more than 5 minutes to count the cuts? 10? 30? 60?

Did the cuts remove something? Join something that was not joined before? Were they made for his benefit? Hers? Someone else's? Could he have made the cuts to her hand? If so, would she die?
