If she was guilty, why not take the plea bargain and accept a lesser sentence? Why maintain your innocence?
Why would you allow cops to search your house but leave the evidence in the trash can?
Wake up people! She is framed.

When you are in the medical field you will pick up trash and what not and take off your gloves and roll your gloves off.Your gloves will end up inside out so you will not get germs on you. What you have in your hand gets trapped in the glove. She did it without thinking because thats the way she takes her gloves off. She got herself busted. Dumb Bitch!
Research her case, the gun casing was not an exact match to the weapon found in the pond, that is one of her appeals complaints.

For anyone who claims her innocence..where does common sense come in within your minds and thought process?
Who would come to kill someone and search for gloves to use AFTER they enter the premises? What other reason aside from that being the casing from the round used to kill him would there be a spent casing, in a glove, in the trash? A nurses second nature with gloves is to take them off inside out with the objects she is holding...normally swabs, caps, bandages, etc...in this case a spent casing. A subconscious action that comes from her normal activities, hence why she missed it. Factor in the DNA..her DNA and his. Did the "perpetrator" wear gloves under the gloves to prevent DNA transfer from themselves? Why would they have needed to go the extra step to search for latex gloves at the scene if they already had their own. Also, who in their right mind would keep a set of latex gloves already used...especially a NURSE? That would have to have been the case since that is her DNA explanation.
Second...what would the chances have to be to have a gun used to kill your husband stolen, and the ONLY gun stolen at that, and then end up in the pond of a house that you just so happen to look at purchasing AFTER the event in question? And then, factor in the statistical probability of hearing a "rumor" the gun may be there, and then end up looking for it in the EXACT location it was found, looking NOWHERE else mind you. There are many factors that could have prevented a definitive match, even if it were the exact gun used. Storage between the time of use until it was put into the water, the water itself, etc..but if it weren't the gun used, why would it have been in the pond? Hell of a coincidence.
The fact is, just these factors should convict her in everyone's minds. The probability of adding all of these variables, probabilities, and coincidences and landing on anyone else is a virtual impossibility.
Oh...and has anyone versed in human behavior even watched her eye and facial movements in interviews? I have a background in interrogations and analysis...I could tell you she is guilty based solely on said interviews.

The IJC has many women in its ranks. One qualification is having been convicted and spent many years in prison for a crime for which they later proved they could not possibly have been guilty.

Hello Elizabeth,
I take it you are under the impression the gun recovered from the pond was the one used in the murder ?

Well spotted red ken bear.
There are other issues too, like one part of the ammunition not matching the gun and, evidence uncovered during the original police investigation which has not been released (why not?).
Can ANYONE suggest a valid reason why the DA's office is reluctant to discuss these issues with DG's legal representatives?

Personally for me the damning evidence was the video. Up until that stage there was "reasonable doubt" and she should have been found not guilty (not necessarily innocent, but she couldn't have been found guilty).

There was no reason for her to be "fishing" in the pond. If she'd heard a rumour the gun was in there, she should have notified the police, or waited until it was drained. It was too much of a conincidence to dimiss.

The rest was circumstantial evidence and without the video I feel the jury still would have had reasonable doubt to acquit her of murder. Sure the 911 call was suspect, but everyone reacts differently to a stressful situation. She didn't ask about her husband at the police station, unusal but not condemning "evidence". She didn't try treating her husband, unusual but you aren't "guilty" because of your inactions. She didn't hear the gunshot, again unusual (did her children?) but that could be argued.

I think all the circimstantial evidence weighed against her, and although portrayed her as "guilty" there still had to be some "reasonable doubt". The video to me however dismissed any reasonable doubt. Sure they couldn't verify it was the murder weapon, but her actions were the final piece of evidence required to resolve any remaining reasonable doubt (I think her attorney didn't do her justice either).
