Well, I’m flabbergasted…but it sure sounds like the wife is a manipulator and the poor man is a shew in for a dupe to be manipulated by a person high in P-traits—like no conscience and plenty of control issues and manipulation.

I lost my original copy (obtained in 1994 or 95) of Robert Hare’s “Without conscience” and I just ordered a new copy and have been rereading it. This woman sounds like she would “qualify.” (head shaking here) but you know….you can open any newspaper and tune to any TV station news cast and find evidence of THEY ARE AMONG US.

Last night in our small community I heard rumors of a shooting, and tonight at the local auction I got the skinny on the situation. A kid age 17 beat up (nearly to death) a girl he wanted to date and she wouldn’t have anything to do with her, then he shot her. A couple of weeks ago an aquaintence’s 17 year old son (an honor student who completed high school at age 15 and is in college) was having trouble with this boy and his mom called the school and the law and nothing….well it ended up the boy came after my friend’s son with a ball bat, but my friend’s son got the better of him in the altercation and sent the other kid to the hospital, resulting in my friend’s honor student son going to juvy for 72 hours…. so you know, THEY ARE AMONG US.

In a way I feel sorry for the guy who shot her husband, I think he was probably manipulated from the get go by her…but I hope that she gets what she deserves as well. Life without parole.

Who saw this story on 20 20 tonight? I did and I am curious as to what someone elses perspective is?
Anyone watch?

Nah, sorry I missed it. Was it pretty much about what the news article said?

Oxy,
Well you know me I am slow to condem because I want to know everything not just the “little” bit of the trial that was shown on TV.
BUT her freaking eyes….SHE dropped her mask as far as I can see when she was on the stand being questioned about her husbands murder. Not always were her eyes like that, but during one specific time of questioning….She lost it. And when she lost it the questions were pretty generic at the time.
and she even said to the laywer questioning her….”do you see what this has done to MY life?” Not like a grieving widow would BUT like a spath would. It was all about her.
so the lawyer is questioning her and she turns around and ask him a question? WTF?

It was almost “chilling” to watch because I am like does anyone ELSE see this in the courtroom….?

I mean she is a free woman. She wasn’t on trial. She should be.

I didn’t see enough of the trial to make any real opinion about Hemy.
I would tend to agree that he was mentally ill because jurys don’t give that easily. And there were 3 doctors that ALL said he was delusional and manic. So I am sure that is why the jury believed it because usually the “expert” witnesses are not on the same page. These 3 all were in agreement.

She looked like the spath in this trial to me though, not the guy who went to jail for the murder.

I didn’t even read this article. Ive been following it because it happened where I live in ATL. This bitch is a sociopath. He was her pawn. They should both rot in hell.

woundlicker,
I didn’t mean to imply that he shouldn’t go to prison….I just do believe he might have been a pawn. He killed him, sane or not…and he is going to pay for that.

BUT she was unbelievable. Did you watch her face on TV? I hope that she will get arrested and go to trial herself?

Locally does it look like this might happen?

Ah, no, I didn’t mean I disagree with anything anyone posted about this. I think he’s just a stupid pawn, too. But no, to answer your question, this woman has gotten away with accomplice to murder…for now.

She’s been the one under the spotlight here, more so then Hemy, but I cant say if the DA will proceed with any charges against her. Doubtful. We know spaths get away with so much. What keeps me going is the hope that one day these sicko’s will get their just desserts.

I sure hope that she is arrested. I would say she is the mastermind behind the entire plot.

She had the pure evil look. On her face and her eyes. If I saw it on TV seems like it had to be even more apparent in person.

She got into a lot of trouble during the court proceedings for her spath tendencies, so who knows? Maybe they’ve been building a case against her all along. I hope whatever they possibly charge her with sticks. She does have the sociopath look. Yuck.

Witty, this article is the first I have heard about this so I am only going by what I read, haven’t seen it on TV or anything. Maybe he was bi-polar or who the fark knows why he was so easily manipulated by her, but it sure does sound like she was the “mastermind” behind it all.

They may have a hard time pinning anything criminal on her, but again who knows?

I think this is a good example though of what a manipulator can do and the damage they can do to others in the environment.

Witty;
I saw the 20/20 program. OMG!
Her eyes…..your so right. Freaky.
Also how she hugged her bestie after she testified against her…..and what was reported she said to the bestie out of eyes of the camera. The threat.
What ‘grieving widow’ get’s banned from her husbands killers murder trial for threats?
Ok…..I guess if she was threatening the defendant…..I’m going to kill you, you killed my husband……but that wasn’t the case….she threatened a witness….her BFF.
She had so much anger and sarcasm on the stand,definately hostile with the questions….not helpful in convicting her husbands killer…..it was hard to follow WHY she was so angry…..lot’s of WTF moments. She wasn’t ‘sad’, but angry. makes a person ask……what’s up with that. More interested in defending her ‘good name’ with convincing/denying to everyone she didn’t have an affair with this bafoon.
Well…..I think we all know that answer!
She definately sang the me, me, me, me, me, me, me song…….
No apparant grief towards the death of her husband.
Nothing mentioned about the loss of her childrens father…..
Interesting.

When the prosecuter was interviewed in the end…..I think it was a tell. He said….I believe she is guilty…..but I can’t prove it.
I think the investigation will continue, even with her outlandish claims…..even more heat will be placed on her.
I think this DA will go until they dig up something on her that will stick. They will go the length until she is down.
I believe she struck a nerve in the authorities….and they will persue her to prove they were not wrong about her.
For now…..she’s getting away with it. The perfect murder.
Interesting that she stayed in the Atlanta area……and not took her 2m and went to Mexico or somewhere a spath could nestle in.

She is a freak and wreaks of Sociopath……a dangerous woman indeed!
