Well, well, well...everyone has and deserves their own opinion...I knew Michael personally, I was his ex wife. Though things did not work out for us in our marriage, our daughter was a "Daddy's Girl". We were close, he called his daughter and she called him, spending hrs on the phone, and yes I talked too) Michael was known not to take crap from any of his employees, many were disrespectful (wearing shorts, halters, coming in late, late for appointments, eating while doing someone's hair) if that was the case for the young minded 19 yr old, then that is why you were fired. Kelly did what she did so that she could live the "good life" and bring her family that was in Trinidad-Tobago here to the US to live..Now go ahead, ask me how do I know this?(Michael told me so) She asked him if she could, and of course he said no, he bought the house for them and not for her family. Though our daughter did not live with them, she had her own room furnished with all a teen would want. So Kelly sorry you thought no one knew about your "lover", but I did and so did Michael, didn't cover up your crap too well. Maybe you thought your "lover" was going to be on your side until at your trial he let it all out..you were lovers way before and after you got married...Oh well...Satan is waiting for you, he said he will be glad to be your new lover...

My store way just up the street from the barber shop. I felt sorry for Michael because there was talk all up and down the street about how he loved this woman, and how she made no secret about not feeling "a ting" as she put it for him. She is where she deserves to be -- he is not

I agree with the judge completely strangling someone takes time, its not like she stabbed or shot him and he died right away, she chocked him and watched him take his last breath that is MURDER and she deserve everything she gets. If he was abusive the USA has special assessment programs that would have helped her get away from him. There is no excuse for taking someones life, she needs to pay.

Now, now Kadeshja Marie....if you really knew what went on and you were there in the house you should have said something to the police....you posting this doesn't help your mother now..Oh well, you will be 29 years old when she is finished her sentence, deportation, halfway house and probation....Now you better get off this computer before your grandparents see this or the authorities...bottom line, no matter how its put, she killed Michael Forbes when she could have easily left him....MURDERER

she was a dold digger who didn't even like him, and yes if he had wanted to kill her he could have, there was no sign of a struggle she is a murderer.

Not for interviews but just to have a chat and get to know her as a friend or even someone to help her through the torment this girl is going through. i can only imagine what kelly might be going through but i would appreciate if some one would help me get in contact with her as being from N.Ireland i have no idea how to do this and with you being a friend i was hoping you could help? Please drop me an email on [email protected] and i will be more than happy to have a chat with you. Hope to speak soon. kind regards.Dave

I worked for Michael and he was a monster. He made me very uncomfortable at work. I did not like him at ALL! No man should behave the way he did. I know we are all Gods children, but God had to take this one out FAST before HE killed someone. Everyone has opinions. Remember this: it was either her or him. Trust me, I KNOW!

OJ, u know who killed Nicole. Just as we all do. Kelly's big mistake is having an affair and being a gold digger. She should've been smarter and called the cops immediately. We will never know what happened. Just too much evidence, however circumstantial, to believe in her innocence. Yes, her husband had been a monster and obviously she didn't know who she was dealing with

I saw this case too and of course I feel bad for the deceased but I do not believe this girl is a murderer. A cheater, yes! Did she make bad choices? yes! But she clearly was defending herself. I could see the marks in the pictures on the back of her neck where he tried to put the cord around her neck. The fact that they actually looked at and showed those pictures and actually said there were no marks show me the power rationalization when they don't want to see something in order to convict even showing the pictures on T.V. and telling you what to see. For those that are weak to the power of suggestion they will look right at the marks and believe what they are told. Sort of like that story of the king who was told he was wearing a beautiful rhobe but in fact was naked he believed what he was told so deeply and so susceptible to the power of suggestion that he walked in the street naked and all of his subjects where too afraid to tell him otherwise. That's what the media is doing in this case with those pictures of her neck.

And to the family of the deceased I say...your "little baby" was no angel and the family knows it this guy was a rapist and a criminal.

Nice person. I am realtor and Michael asked me to find him a house in Long Island I didn't however but he wanted me to see the house he was going to purchase. He use to say I am tired of all the noise in my neighborhood and he wanted to live where there was water and tranquility. He loved the water. He was a family oriented person who loved his family especially his mother and daughter. Michael wanted very much to get married. He said the woman I marry would be treated like a Queen and would never have to work. I went out with him on business meetings and he was a perfect gentlemen. Michael said "I would never raise my hand to a woman". May he RIP.
