BTS: Lies, damned lies

Another quick crime mystery for you this week:

A man was found murdered Sunday morning. His wife immediately called the police. The police questioned the wife and staff and got these

The wife said she was sleeping. The cook was preparing breakfast. The gardener was gathering vegetables. The maid was getting the mail.

The police instantly arrested the murderer. Who did it and how did they know?

As for the solution to last week’s mystery; in winter, condensation forms on the inside of the pane, not the outside. Hence, Mr. Hound must have been lying about wiping away the condensation.
