The bizarre windshield murder goes to trial

  1. http://msnbc.com/news/930241.asp

    FORT WORTH, Texas, June 23- A former nurse's aide pleaded guilty to a lesser count Monday before she went on trial on a murder charge, accused of hitting a man with her car and leaving him stuck in the windshield and dying.

    This is STILL totally unbelievable.

    What annoys me is that they refer to her as a "former nurses aide" if she had been a former hairdresser or former florist would they have included that description in the news?

    At least they stopped referring to her as a nurse as they did originally.

    Yes, most likely they would.

    But, like Sharon, I'm glad the media sources have finally quit calling her a nurse!

    I just read that the two men who helped her dispose of the body entered pleas for tampering with evidence and something else (sort term memory loss here), in exchange for testifying against her. One recieved a sentence of 9 years, the other got 10 years.
    Makes me believe she will be going away for life.

    I would certainly hope so, jemb. This is definitely murder, not manslaughter. It would be a gross failure of our justice system, if she received anything but life without chance of parole.

    OK, was I hearing things on the radio today?? The claim that she was a cold-hearted killer was poo-poo'd by her attorneys, stating that she merely took too much ecstasy, drank too much, and smoked some pot. Well, then that's ok.

    Oh, and she cried alot and kept returning to the garage apologizing to him as he bled to death. So, she really isn't such a bad person. Give me a break.

    The lawyers are going for diminished capacity. "Poor thing didn't know what she was doing." I hope they give her the MAX.

    Amen to that! She drove home with this guy in her windshield, & while she kept him in her garage, he kept pleading with her to help him. Did she? No. She may not have known what she was doing when she was under the influence & driving, but she made the concious choice to watch him suffer afterwards. There's no question, as far as I'm concerned.
