Why this headline bothers me

This headline bothers me (warning, it’s a link to the Mail, don’t go there by mistake if you don’t want to).

It reads:

Jealous boyfriend who stabbed ex-girlfriend 83 times after wrongly accusing her of having an affair is jailed for life

Why is the part in there about wrongly accusing her of having an affair?  Doesn’t it imply – admittedly obliquely – that it would have been perfectly understandable if she had been having an affair?
