For this week’s puzzle: Can you figure out this Sherlock riddle? Good luck!

Sherlock Holmes was passing through the Central Market when he noticed a large number of people gathered around a man’s dead body.
He carefully examined the body and found the victim’s wallet where he finds the man’s drivers license. The man’s name was Jack and Sherlock immediately dialed the man’s residence number found in the wallet.
Jack’s wife took the call and Sherlock informed that her husband had died. She could not believe it! Sherlock urged her to come as soon as possible to confirm that it was indeed her husband. Without another question, the wife says “OK” and hangs up the phone.

After a few minutes the deceased’s wife arrived and started crying as soon as she saw the body. Sherlock declared Jack’s wife the murderer and asked the police officer to arrest her. Why did Sherlock do so?
