    I don’t know either of Them.
    But I’m willing to bet; He brought it on Himself.
    To bad She just couldn’t of just went off somewhere an cooled off..

    Her attorney will enter a not guilty plea based on sef-defense created by alleged abuse. The attorney will use the deceased’s occupation (retired Highway Patrol Officer) as the basic cause of the abuse. She will be sentenced to 10 years less time served, and released within 18 months of her sentence. Just speculating based on past similar cases.

    Just guessing, but after viewing a close up of her face it appears that she could possibly be a drug addict. And, the marks on her neck looks more like rashes than abuse. Since the deceased can no long speak, the cops have no option other than investigating her side of the murder.

      I agree, it does look like a rash, or dry skin patches, If they had been arguing, that is a big IF, why was he shot several times, he is bigger than she is, but another Jodi Arias I guess…. well, I hope she gets life without parole. it was senseless to shot him as many times as she did. I agree with you Glenn

    A drug addict? Really? Don’t you imagine that she may have been crying and upset thus the red face and eyes? She’s not a drug addict. They’re both good people. Nobody knows what happened in that house but them. Those of you that make jokes of this situation are complete losers. You won’t think it’s funny if it happens to someone close to you. Have some respect. Say a prayer.

    Every holiday emotions run high, and usually a “high” price is paid in some way. This is another example in a long list
