Is her husband the killer? Did she know about the murder beforehand? When she sees the killing, does she expect to die as well?

This seems obvious, but is she in her home? Is the neighbor in his home? Is the killer in the neighbor's home?

Is her husband in their home? Does he kill her at close range (i.e., with his hands or a handheld weapon)? Does he kill the neighbor at close range?

Are mirrors involved? Video cameras?

Was what she saw a live news report or something like? And the first murder was close to her, and her husband came and killed her too?

Otherwise, is her husband an actor? And what she was a movie of his where he had committed murder? and it so happened he killed her right after tht?

********* SPOILER ************

Janie looked through the window and saw "Crime Watch" on next-door's TV. It featured her new husband Ted (who she had married after a whirlwind holiday romance, and only known for a few months) robbing a convenience store and shooting dead the proprietor. Janie reached for the phone to contact the police, but unfortunately for her, Ted also saw the programme through the window, and killer her before she could get past the first 9
