She spent a grand total of 12 days in jail and 2 years in psychiatric care.
She should have served more time, IMO. And, regardless of what he did---I believe she needs psychiatric care for let's say---the rest of her life.
I can't help but think she got off easy because she claimed her preacher husband mentally and emotionally abused her. I guess we really don't know, maybe he did....but still....seems like religion played a part in getting extra sympathy (anti religious sympathy) from the jury.
She should have thought of talking to someone (and getting help) before murdering her husband. Now, her children are at risk? :loco ITA, religion did play "a part in getting extra sympathy (anti religious sympathy) from the jury." Sorry, I would label this woman as a "Black Widow." The whole thing is ludicrous, IMO. And, not that I am fond of Paris Hilton, but at the same time this was going on---Paris was served with a greater sentence for drinking and driving. She didn't serve out her whole term, but---Murder of a spouse/Drinking and Driving (where no one was physically hurt???) :uuhm: Where is the justice?
