    Or even 2nd degree murder might have worked. And even looking at it now, even if she did kill her daughter, I'm not sure if I'd classify it as 1st degree. How did they try to prove that it was pre-meditated? (I didn't follow the trial)

      The prosecution's story was that she deliberately knocked her daughter out with chloroform, then duct-taped her mouth so that she suffocated to death, however I don't believe that suffocation was ever proven as the COD.

        Ok, that would be 1st degree, as buying chloroform would indicate pre-meditation, but to go with that story without a COD or other supporting evidence that can't be torn apart by the defense was just asinine.

          Bah. Manufacture? Really? The prosecution over charged and got caught. The evidene in the case was not only circumstancial but sparse.

            You and Zanny and those twelve dumbells on the jury evidently agree.

              Shhh, burden of proof isn't required when it's so obvious.

              Incompetant prosecution shooting to get a home run for the loss.

                I agree that the prosecution screwed the pooch here. I also believe that there is a big difference between "not guilty" and "innocent", even though our justice system does not.

                  So you're a prosecutor, too? All of you "experts" yammering about how that psychopathic little b*tch was "over charged" are ignoring that one of the lesser included charges was manslaughter. Right? Typical, reflexive anti -authoritarianism.

                      You're not supposed to laugh. You're supposed to reorder your pathetic priorities.
