she wasn't guilty, but personally if my husband had been cheating on me i would have killed him. He deserved what he got, but i don't think his wife was the one that gave it to him.

I feel Elicia Hughes is guilty, the gun residue on the back of her hands unexplained. I looked in her face and I didn't see hurt or pain. Elicia had family members on the police force, father was a pharmacist and the kicker was she never commented or expressed how she felt about her husband cheating. A cheating husband does not constitute death. Elicia should have divorced Brian and hit him where it hurts his wallet. Please people don't forget the $250,000 dollars I'm sure she's laughing about everytime she looks at her bank account. Brian needs to haunt her for the rest of her natural life....Elicia got a way with cold blooded murder...Fellas beware or don't cheat on her

This should be a lesson for anyone who cheats on their spouse, I do not believe Elicia committed this crime, I say look at the brother, the two women he was cheating with and also the drug dealers, you know what goes around comes around, and sorry Brian had to pay with his life, but with his lifestyle he could have gave his wife a disease that she could have paid for the rest of her life. I say Elicia continue to keep your head up, I am glad you were found not guilty, I will continue to pray for you and your children. I say leave Mississippi and start a new life. God has given you another chance take it and bless someone else.

I'm so happy for you. This whole investigation was messed up. Detectives should break out of this habit automatically thinking it is the spouse all of time. That mistress seemed very suspect to me, any woman who would date a married man for two years has not moral character. Elisha I hope you find the type of life you deserve for your children. May God bless you.

In the court case the prosecutors and the firearms expert stated that the 45 only ejected to the right. But the Randall Firearms Company produced a left handed 45 ACP semi automatic pistol that ejected the spent cases to the left. It was a mirror image of Colt 1911A1 45 ACP. The 45 semi automatic pistol produced by the Randall Firearms Company was the Service Model B111 as well as other models. http://www.sightm1911.com/lib/history/randall...
The police firearms expert should have known this. So a 45 that ejects the cases to the left does exist. That is why the spents cases were found on the left side of the doorway.

Were the boyfriends or husbands of the women Brian Hughes seeing “left handed?” Or were any of his "girlfriends" left handed? Were any of Brian's "associates" left handed?

But I think she did it. Something doesn't seem right. I pray she repents if she did and hopefully he'll handle the rest.

Everyone keep saying How This and How That. But when you get woke up from shots and alarm you are startled. Apparently no one knew the cheater. But the girlfriend and she had the most motive.

Im so happy for Mrs. Hughes, I know in my heart she didnt kill her husband, but I do think someone was there with him, maybe thay need to look more into an angry husband or boyfriend of one of the women he was fooling around with..

Ok I was just told today by 2 people that know Her that she has since remarried ( A police detective) and has a child by him & they they built a big house. I just wonder why this wasn't brought out. I heard that she was dating this guy when Brian was murdered. this sure explains a lot. I just wonder why no one mentioned any of this on Dateline when they said Elicia still goes by her maiden name.This woman & her new husband together got away with murder & I am out raged.

I think her story combined with the facts was enough to find her quilty. You seem to think just as the second jury did, you are thinking about how to change the facts into something that could make her case look better. Cheater and/or drug user, it doesn't make it right for her to kill him. If she didn't do it then which daughter did? THE TWO OR THE FOUR YEAR OLD!!!!!

Too bad for the Hughes Family. Too bad that no one picked apart the story of the neighbor that heard the car driving off after the gun shot. Where was she during the first trial? What makes her anymore credible than the girlfriend that changed her story. A LIAR IS A LIAR!!

If this is true, then maybe she let him into the house to wait for Brian? He shot Brian and then left the house? I don't see how any unbiased person can look at this case and not think that this lady had something to do with her husbands death.

I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread. You know, one thing I obeserved is that she does did not look like she killed someone. Not because of her looks as the prosecution kept saying. But she does not look like a person with a guilty conscience. You might be able to keep a game face for a while but eventually the guilt should eat you up. Example, look at pictures of O.J. now and pictures before his wife was murdered. Something is eating him up on the inside that is visible on the outside. I do not see that with Elicia.

JUST BECAUSE HE CHEATED DID NOT GIVE A RIGHT TO KILL HIM. SHE CHOSE TO STAY WITH HIM AND BY STAYING WITH HIM SHE WAS OKAING THE FACT THAT HE WAS SCREWING OTHER PEOPLE. SHE TOOK THE LIFE OF HER HUSBAND AND SOMEONES SON, BROTHER AND FATHER. MAY HER SOUL BURN IN HELL. EVIL WITCH
