What's up with men murdering women in Woody Allen's films?

I have enjoyed Allen's films for decades. But over the later years, I've noticed several of his movies have male characters who often kill off a female in order to make room for that male's other sexual pursuits or (quite frankly) just to make the guy's life easier.

The films:

Crimes and Misdemeanors


Match Point

Bullets Over Broadway

Manhattan Murder Mystery

What's Up with THAT?

Anybody have any theories?

Hostility and fear of women.

I'm not knocking him; I love his work. But those feelings ooze out of his stories.
