“Running water where the dark blind met the window sill wasn’t the only indication something untoward happened”, was the opening statement by the defense. “The rain water came in from a series of bullet holes.” The snappy dressed lawyer addressed the jury in the tall slim blonde’s behalf. Her husband was mysteriously shot to death while a robbery was in progress.
“My client is obviously innocent, and this was clearly a robbery” sighting the missing items of value. The defendant’s demeanor was hardly innocent and the older women in the jury tended to glower at her with piercing eyes. Whenever the defense attorney returned to his seat, the defendant would sigh and cling to his arm, giving it an easy squeeze.
The trial ended up with the young woman found guilty after a hidden video showed her forcing the old man onto his knees with a gun.
