She drugged her husband put him in a sleeping bag and then shot him once through the head, then she proclaimed that he attempted to drown her and that she fired a shot toward him in the dark reacting out of self defense.

Funny thing is the forensic toxicologist testified that Chris Northon was so drugged up with restoril that he would have been in a deep sleep if not close to death from the amount of restoril discovered in his blood stream.

Chris and his buddies went to Mexico to get speed and used Restoril to even out the highs. There is an entire chapter in the book Crazy Town by Sterling R. Braswell that focuses on the use of Restoril by airline pilots. There was a tape in the Northon court case which was transcribed by the police that documented Chris and two of his friends talking about how to use home drug tests to keep the airlines from busting them. The police illegally allowed Chris to be cremated before the independent autopsy could be conducted using hair samples, which could have confirmed long-term abuse of speed (meth) and sleeping pills (Restoril). The defense contended the high amount of Restoril in his body was not unusual for someone who used drugs often and in large quantities.

What about Liysa's hidden computers and the evidence that sent her to prison?

Where was the bottle? People who are using usually keep their drugs in a container of some sorts. There was no bottle of pills or empty bottle at the site.

Rick is stupid for leaving a wonderful, VERY beautiful, petite, successful and intelligent wife for that psychotic murderer. What a total loser! Guess he didn't feel adequate next to Cheryl.

I don't see the marriage of Lisya and Rick Swart lasting very long. When they both find out that each are selfish and narcissistic, it will be over. One of them will throw the other one over...probably for another loser.
Let's wish those two LOSERS well...and pray they don't move next door to us!

Oh Ralph, give me a break! Liysa Northon is guilty of KILLING Chris Northon in cold blood. That's why she's in prison. There is absolutely NO evidence that he had meth in his system and if he had, does that give Liysa the right to kill him? Wake up, Buddy. You obviously are in the camp of Liysa and Rick Swart, trying to justify murder. There was no "self defense". That EVIL, lying, manipulative woman premeditated the murder of Chris and took away her son's daddy. Shame on her!

Rick Swart has no credibility at all. What a SAP. He deserves whatever comes his way. The tape you mention had NOTHING on it relating to the drug stuff. Little miss psycho claims the police erased it. PLEASE...What about the amount of alcohol and marjane in his blood? Sorry, but the cops must have faked that as well? What about the 2 Tasers she left at her friends, and the 2 burn marks on his chest? If HE was the one who ingested the Ristoril, where is the bottle? I suppose she cleaned up the site? If she is running with the child under one arm and firing as she ran, how in Gods name does she get a VERTICAL trajectory?! Quite convenient that it happened to hit him in the temple...a perfect shot! I could go on and on, but I am guessing you get my point. Life in prison for this twacked out piece of garbage.

Totally agree. A clear-cut case of premeditated, cold-blooded murder. Nothing she says adds up. I just feels sorry for Chris's family having to see his reputation tainted by her lies. That article by Rick Swart holds zero credibility now that we know he was her fourth husband-to-be at the time.

I read Ann Rules book in 2006. It touched me so deeply to see such viscious manipulation and hatred come from one person and to snuff out a father and son in one fail swoop. What an evil woman. I pity Chris's family but more than anything I pity her children. Prayers for them!

Someone help me. How many years was this women given for the murder. How many years off her sentence for 'teaching yoga'? Is she out or not?
Can't wait to see how long THAT marriage lasts after she is out. And if she is out it is WAY to soon.

Fact: Chris Northorn was murdered in cold-blood by this wretched excuse for a human being, Lies-er Wart. Fact: Chris was found naked, in his sleeping bag, zipped all the way up to his head, so drugged that he was practically in a coma, with bullet shot in the back of his head from point-blank range. Lie-ser's story, believe it or not (and almost nobody does) was that she was fleeing in terror from this abusive monster and fired one shot (in the dark no less) in the general direction of her "rampaging" husband. This Wart creature should be in a cage where she can't inflict further harm on innocent people.

what a complete creep (not talking about Lisa though... she is). she got engaged to Swart 12 days after his divorce became final, and he neglected to provide conflict of interest info. while she was in jail he worked for Oregon State, ugh. he's from here. he's a cretin.
