The Monk (pages 281-376)

At this point, Ambrosio is super [BEEP]ing messed up.  In order to gain access to Antonia, he goes to her house in the middle of the night.  Just when he is about to violate the sleeping Antonia, Elvira walks in the room and quite understandably, flies into a rage.  When she says she will ruin him with his secret, he sees no choice but to kill her.
