I just finishing watching a t.v. program that featured this particular case.

I say case intentionally here because this poor doctor very obviously got shafted. The womans family raised enough stink that someone had to pay. The fact that there was no proof, and an easily recognizable lack of motive aside. Everyone involved in this sham should go to jail. That poor poor man......

The doctors ex-inlaws needed someone to blame so let me help them in that regard.
First the lady racks siphon's of 15,000 dollars into a secret account. Next, she secretly piles up as much dept for the doctor as she possibly can, so that she can dump in on him when she leaves, while massing a growing pile of jewelery that she can easily sell later to complete her nest egg. Ding ding ding!!!!! THIS WAS NOT A NICE LADY>! Is it motive? No. Just compelling evidence how horrible of a person she was to the dr. there by proving that the dr. was telling the truth she really was not nice at all to him. Maybe be she was nice to everyone else, but lets face it, she was down right dirty to him. the reason I am saying that the debt is not motive is because he was trying to get her to fix the spending, fix the lack of love in there relationship and he specifically requested for her to work on key areas. We learn this in the diary that he kept at the request of the marriage councilor.
Men that don't have love in there hearts would not keep with the diary thing. We wouldn't. Why? Because there wouldn't be worth the effort. Secondly, does it not seem odd that the husband had followed the councilors request to keep a journal but the wife didn't? This suggests two things. First, she went to the marriage councilor and had no intention of fixing their marriage. Secondly, she went to the marriage councilor to fool her husband, and her family, and give herself enough time to steal as much money and buy items she could later sell for money. All the while making it look to those outside the marriage that she was the sweet good little wife and he the bad bad husband.

Poor Dr. wangler, I must admit to you if I had tried so hard to fix my marriage and went through all you had suffered at the hands of that foul woman, I would feel bad for NOT feeling bad at her passing. She tortured you. Getting lucky is not a crime in this country. The woman died. The Dr. didn't do it. There was no evidence otherwise. Let the poor man out of jail.

It is sad this man went to prison over this. There's no proof. I also agree with the previous comment-she was not a nice lady. She lived like a slob and refused to improve. At least he was working on the marriage by attending counselling and keeping the journal, etc. It is scary that you can be sent to prison for a life sentence with such lack of evidence.

There's a concept in Logic 101 referred to as Occam's Razor. It's a damn shame they don't teach it in grade school, because training people HOW to think - instead of what to think, would solve many of the world's problems.

In a nutshell, Occam's Razor is this:

"In any situation of multiple options, when we don't know the answer, the simplest event that could cause the outcome, is invariably the correct event."

And for the record, in the absence of "circumstantial evidence" you would be incapable of either driving a car down a busy street, or indeed, even chewing and swallowing.

"Circumstance" isn't something you thumb your nose at in court, and then turn around and use it successfully 10,000 times every day of your waking life.

When paramedics and an ER doctor and a pathologist report that the victim's body showed signs of rigor and lividty - you can bet the house on it.

A sentient jury can fairly convict, on that fact alone.

When an anguished man writes in his journal that he wants God to act in a powerful way to rid his house of a demon; his wife dies three days later; and then he writes a thank you note to God for answering his prayers - well, again, Occam's Razor.

I realize how hard it is for this doctor's supporters to think he could have killed his wife. Hell, if I'd been in that house, I might have killed her myself.

But I suggest you all do yourselves and - for God sakes, your families & friends a big favor: learn to apply logic, even when it hurts.

I suspect the biggest trick for humans to master, is thinking clearly when we are in pain.

I am surprised that the evidence brought forward did not provide the fact that cars no longer produce sufficent carbon monoxide to kill anyone in the past 15 or so years. The only way that a current day automobile can produce any quantity of carbon monoxide is to remove the catalytic converter. It is highly unlikely that Dr. Wangler could remove the converter and if he did do it, it would be very obvious.

Occam's Razor you say. So the gas travelled DOWNWARDS and then UPWARDS from a tiny area into the ventilation system?
Anyone with a brain knows that gas rises.
And like Daniel Davis says, if Dr Wangler fiddled with the catalytic converter, the evidence would have been there.
Convicted by a Jury of dumbarses not using their brain.... Occam's Razor : she died of a seizure probably partially from being so overweight and unhealthy, partially from faulty water cylinder emitting gas UPWARDS. Got a simpler explanation??
