Can someone explain the difference between capital murder and first degree murder? Looks she could only be charged with conspiracy to commit murder or being an accessory to the crime since she wasn't actually present when it took place.

Guess you can be charged with anything they want to charge you with. Proving it in court is a whole different story.

It's impossible for me to even comprehend that anyone is capable of doing the things she has alledgedly done. It sounds a lot like the Scott Peterson case, but you would expect a mother of three to have more sense than a horny man!

Is it possible that she's being framed by the three who were originally charged? Can't imagine any mother doing that to her children even if she cared nothing for their father!

Just asked because in the news clip on TV she appeared to be furious rather than sad, scared, or nervous and I would certainly be mad if I was being framed for a crime I didn't commit! Especially by my own father!

Oh my gosh! Are you kidding??? That is one of the stupidest lies I've heard so far! How is her father framing her when he hasn't even implicated her in the crime??? Really? He admitted to what he did and has not opened his mouth about her because he's still protecting her! It's pretty rotten of her ( among other things) to let her dad sit in jail and take the blame for murdering Marc when the two of them conspired together!! And now she's going to try saying he framed her? What a horrible freaking piece of shat.
What lie? I didn't say she said she was framed. I don't know her and have never spoken to her. Just asked if it was a possibility that she might have been framed because it's impossible for me to wrap my head around a woman having the father of her children killed and especially conspiring with their grandfather to do it. Bad enough that they lost their father but it being because of their granfather is what bad TV shows are made of. Guess sometimes the truth really is stranger than fiction.

And, NO, I don't get out much. At least not in the company people who are capable of planning a contract murder of the person they have vowed to love and honor 'until death do us part'. Well, death has parted them and she sure hasn't shown much love since then. Probably not much love for anything but his money before then.

capital murder is when a murder is planned in advance & not a crime of passion. Michelle is so evil, u know she was sexing her husband while plannning on killing him to collect life insurance. it is my understanding they were in dire straights as bank was forclosing on properties they had. I wonder if she also planned on credit life on them loans on real estate were goin to pay off so she could get property out of hock. I also am so concerned for their kids. I cant believe the DHS would allow those kids to be with her. She is very capable of killing those kids as well as herself. I know she is innocent til proven guilty, but looks like police did a great job of getting warrant for her arrest on CAPITAL MURDER!!! She should have not been allowed no bail just like other defendants NO BAIL. Michelle does not have a clue of how her life is gonna be in womens correction facility in Newport

If he can't get a conviction in this case he doesn't belong in a courtroom.

not to worry, michelle lawyers have squeezed every dime out of her they can get. u know u cant get blood out of a turnip!!!! I suppose the prosecution allowed her a bond & then a continuance to allow her kids to graduate hi school. I still say "the kids" are in grave danger of a murder suicide @ the hands of Michelle. U know Michelle's mental facilities r way lacking. She is capable of ANYTHING!!! Not to worry, she is still on a tight rope. Not sure what Judge Hill's next tour is in Craig. court, but they will get that SWEET MICHELLE on the docket.
