I am married to Camila from Riverwood, and I realised I would prefer being married to someone who acts as a follower.

I don't want to get a bounty or be confronted the guards of Whiterun whatsoever, so how do I kill her discreetly? I'm not going to slaughter her in public.

Just a warning: you might not be able to remarry if your wife dies. See here. – Mana Jan 29 '12 at 18:37
@Mana I'm pretty sure, short of using some console commands, there's no might about it - you will not be able to marry if your wife dies. – Iszi Jan 29 '12 at 18:39
@Iszi I actually only put might there because of the whole console command-type deal. – Mana Jan 29 '12 at 18:43
Please see this and this. I believe Iszi has an answer there that might help. And in my experience console was the only way to go. Married Ysolda, divorced using a console lawyer, and remarried Mjoll. The lawyer saved me a lot of alimony payments as well. :-) – ヴァイシャリ Jan 29 '12 at 18:49
Also, welcome to all manner of government watchlists :) – MrLemon Jun 15 '14 at 12:15

It sounds to me like the easiest way to do it discreetly would be to move to her house and do it there, as long as nobody else lives there. Alternately: Go to one of your houses, ask your Housecarl there to follow you. Take the Housecarl outside of the house and ask them to wait there. Then, go back to your house and kill your wife.

However, as @Mana has mentioned, you will not be able to remarry after your wife has died. The only way to possibly get around this would be with some console commands on the PC.
