He may have served time for rape, burglary and other crimes but she married him anyway. I'm quite sure she knew about this. I say she married him, killed him and is waiting for the life insurance policy to clear. Greedy Biatch.

I'm with you stacey. I just hope the jury that eventually serves for the trial isn't blinded by her allegations of self-defense. her lawyer is a jerk. "a ham sandwich" can get an incitement for murder? so i guess a tuna melt only merits manslaughter. Michael Forbes was hospitalized a month ago for a supposed heart attack. even if there was an argument that night, she was just as abusive, obviously, and should be held responsible for his death, intentional or not.

So, at what point does she cease being a newlywed and become a widow?

Still, Michael's first wife, Nadene Dunnavant Forbes, now of Maryland, said he was a good husband despite his spotty history. "If he didn't tell me about his past I never would have known," she said. "He was a very loving person."

First wife,Nadine is saying Michael Forbes was a good man implying that he was murdered for gain .She hopes the second wife will be found guilty then won't be eligible to collect on the estate and it will revert to herself

I agree with you. I think you are right. The former wife has nothing to do with what is going on now. She obviously has some history with him but she also has a reason to be angry about what happened to her.

I believe this lady. She has bruises on her neck and arms, who knows what he did or was doing to her. Love does strange things to people too. she probably did not believe that he was capable of the things that he did and served time for either. I think this lady should get out of jail, have her day in court and let the jury decide her fate. Personally she needs to be vindicated and get her child back and go on with her life. Just my opinion. I don't mean any diserespect to anyone or their opinions here.

Stacy, I disagree with your comments. I believe this was an argument and it got out of hand. I also think he did something to her that made her snap. Maybe just maybe he got what he deserved? Who knows what happened. We are not talking about a person who was an angel here either.

His history only prejudices the opinions others have of him despite his having maintained a clean record for 20 years and despite the feelings of his first wife who claimed he was a good husband. The first wife has nothing to gain to coming to her ex-husband's defense.
The guy was hospitalized a month ago. Who knows what the reasons were though it was reported as having been a heart attack/stroke, both of which leave you greatly bereft of strength.

I haven't seen any deep bruises on this woman except for the big pimples on her face. Whatever she might have on her could have resulted from the struggle he put up when being overtaken by her. Remember, he was found unconscious on the floor. Obviously this woman had a massive temper of her own to take things to point of strangulation. She deserves the charges she got, regardless of her husband's history since she has proven herself to be a lethal batterer.

Also, Michael Forbes was very smart to put the car and the house in the names of his parents, leaving nothing to his wife. Kick @$$!

Well maisie and OMG, it is quite obvious you guys are from Trinidad or one of thos "great" islands. Don't know why you people always come here for our american dream. The first wife can't get anything....its the child that would inherit his estate, just like Kelly's daughter, where ever her father is, probably have to do 256 paternity testings to find out "who the daddy is"...I am sure she doesn't even know, nevertheless...Aimee your right he was a smart man to put everything in his fathers name for blood clots like Kelly Chadee,,,

to Julissa: I really really hope you didn't pass your "medical assisting" class. You write like a 4th grader. Books smarts have nothing to do with violent tendencies. In fact, a number of serial killers have scored in the genius range if you want to make that argument. This woman wasn't working at time she killed her husband and instead of looking for a job she was having an affair with a man who has testified to seeing NO bruises on her body nor hearing anything about her enduring battery from her husband.
You're being a good friend by defending her but you're also being blind by doing so. The facts are there. The shame is that American taxpayers will have have pay for her stay in prison. B**ch.

First off Loser Nadene is my mom your the only bitch here and she left him. I lived with Michael throughout my high school years and he was not that bad of a guy. This girl was cheating on him 2 months after they got married. I would be pissed off too. She was out all day coming home late at night. I would argue with her if that was my wife. She was probably mad she got caught. Michael knew what was going on.

Well, its finally over...All those who tried to shame the name of Michael Forbes and the Forbes family is now eating cotton. The judge saw it fit to sentence Kelly to 21 yrs. (same age as Michael when she killed him) and Kadisha her daughter will be 31 yrs old when she gets reunited with her mother. No matter what the negative blogs were saying, Michael did treat my daughter and myself right (vacations, birthdays, christmas) thou we were divorced six years, we became great friends. My daughter spoke in court where there wasn't a dry eye, her father would have been so proud. His spirit is still alive and we will continue to have his legacy go on....No matter how many years Kelly got, she has a lifetime to live with what she has done, and again his spirit is still alive to haunt her forever. Suggestion to Kelly, cut that hair before Michael gets you in your sleep and ties a big bow around your neck, he will tie it just as hard as you did until your eyes pop out like you did his.

Remember, do not believe all of what you read in the papers and unfortunately none of what the family has to say. Michael Forbes was a mean, cruel man. Sadly, the ex-wife, Nadene Dunnavant has been so badly beaten and brain washed by Michael that she may believe what she is actually saying. Check the records of the 75th Police Precinct and you will find where Michael brutally beat her. Even worst, check Brooklyn, NY court records and you will learn where not only did he divorce her after swindling her out of a home, a barbershop and substantial funds, but on several occasions he drugged her and her teenage son with narcotics, thereafter taking numerous porno graphic photos of her and the teenage son. Michael Forbes criminal record is very, very extensive, including child pornography.

Wow, what do we do to clean this one up? Is it true that YouTube has some footage of Michael's eyes popping out. Ugh. I take that back. I say there were prurient interests all around.
