Her excuse for being at the pond was that she wanted to find the gun because she believed that the police would believe it was her. Just because a gun was found in the pond???? She didn't know that the friend had called the police - I don't know - I think she's guilty, but I'm glad she didn't get the death penalty as I do not believe in it.

1) Latex gloves found in trash: her DNA, husbands DNA, Blood of husband. Gunshot residue. No other DNA.

2) Asked friend to fill in pond. Was so obvious about it friend got suspicious and called police.

3) After phone call from friend she went to pond and searched EXACT spot gun was found.

4) A NURSE doesn't check her husband after she sees blood? Boggles the mind that my mate would not try and help even if not a nurse.

Lots of other circumstantial evidence but she is obviously guilty based on the above. The question is why she did it? Wanted money and wanted out to party? hard to say. Face of pure evil.

Three kids lost both parents. If she was black and urban they would have strapped her to the gurney and sent her to hell.

I don't understand some women. They have a nice man that other women would give their right arm to have.

But that isn't enough for individuals like Darlene Gentry.

She's right where she belongs.

i feel sorry for u having to be related to this disgusting excuse for a woman. i don't see how u can still love her though, even if she's blood related.don't feel like u have to just because she's family. i don't know exactly how she's related to u, but i'd have a hard time still loving my own mother if i found out she killed somebody in this way. some people do horrible things because they're evil from conception, so loving them makes no sense.

It's a damn shame that such a fine piece of ass is sitting in prison and not being pounded on a regular basis. What I would give to plow some strange like that.

Darlene,
She deserves everything coming to her. Why couldn't she just get an darn divorce.
She's stupid for thinking she could get away with it. Rot, in prison bitch.

This happened to me my sister n law murdered my brother. The samething an intruder did it. She staged the whole scene. And ransacked it. They never found the weapon but she did fail gsr test. Till this day she wont admit it. She left a child behind and hes had to grow up w confusion and being the most innocent victim . When she murdered my brother she killed my famiy. But the worst is not knowing why she did it. My prayers go out to the gentry children and grandparents.

I just can't figure something out about that .22 caliber shell casing that was found in the trash can inside that latex glove which is the prosecution's best ?? hard evidence against her. I am guessing because I didn't hear one way or that the gun retrieved from the pond was the murder weapon because so much was made about where they found it and her efforts (on video) to go back for it. All the photos I have seen, the victim's own fathers statement (about giving him the gun) and from Police video I saw on TV all show that gun as being a revolver. Revolvers do not eject the shells when they are fired. I can't figure out where the shell casing came from. If she is indeed guilty, why did she take the shell casing out of the murder weapon, roll it into a latex glove and put it in the trash can to be found when she went out of her way to dispose of the gun. It doesn't make sense.

This girl is so guilty!! People say they feel she was set up, obviously those people haven't listened to the entire story on this case. She gave herself away when she called the police telling them all her lies, known of it adds up. Like a murderer is going to come to your house with no weapon and just assume that you have weapons for them to use and how would they know where the key was to the gun shelf and oh yeah let's take all the guns except for one and throw them in the front yard... that's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Point is she thinks she so good looking that she could do whatever she wanted and get out of any situation. I myself am a very attractive woman and I even know that looks will not help get you out in this type of situation, although I would never take someone life away from them. I personally think this Darlene is not attractive, she was to a point with all her makeup and haircolor but not naturally no she's not pretty at all. Just looking at her and the way she acts makes me sick at my stomach. Hope this selfish so called woman has to do the full 60 years.
