In less than seven hours of deliberations, twelve Idaho jurors found Lori Vallow guilty of killing her two children and her current husband’s then-wife,
The most shocking event in court this week is the fact that the defense did not put on a defense. After the prosecutor ended its case, defense attorneys told the judge that Vallow's team did not believe the state proved its case, so they did not have a reason to present a case.
A date for sentencing has not yet been set, however Vallow could get life in prison.

Loving Mom Bludgeoned With Kitchen Frying Pan, STABBED 30 TIMES
3 dni temu
45:02A college secret is said to be the motive behind the murder of an Ohio Mom. Brenda Powell was bludgeoned with a frying pan and then stabbed more than 30 times. Daughter Sydney Powell, 19 at the time, was charged with murder. Prosecutors claimed Sydney Powell did not tell her parents that she was suspended from Mount Union University months earlier for poor academics. Brenda Powell was on the phone with college officials when her daughter struck. Defense experts argued that Sydney Powell suffered a psychotic break when she killed her mother. Three experts found she was schizophrenic and could not discern right from wrong. Experts for the prosecution asserted Powell had mental health issues, but was not insane when she committed the crime.

Did GLAM 'RUSSIAN' SWINGER take out HIT ON HUBBY?
39:44Tatyana Remley stands charged with soliciting someone to kill her husband. Remley approaches a friend with an offer of $2 million dollars to end her estranged husband's life. The friend went to police, who set up a sting. The couple is in the midst of a divorce. In her filings, Remley says her husband held a gun to her head, threatening to kill her, and chased her around the house with a knife, trying to kill her. Remley is asking the court for $15,000 a month in spousal support, saying she pays $12,000 in monthly expenses. In 2012, the Remley couple gained attention for orchestrating a mobile equestrian event named “Valitar in Del Mar.” The show was quickly canceled, however, plunging the couple into lawsuit battles with vendors who claimed they didn’t get paid.
