What Happened in Salem: Week of April 11th
Literally every storyline was about murder or attempted murder.
With Ben tied to the bed, Abigail lit him on fire. Chad made it home in time to put out the fire before Ben died, and he told the police that Ben had been burned when Abigail dropped a kerosene lamp.

Abigail lashed out at Chad for having ruined her chance to eliminate Ben forever, but later she seemed to have blocked out the entire thing and continued to be generally crackers.
