SHAMEFUL DEFENSE LAWYER. Trying to claim she had attempted suicide before but no one else seems to remember it and there are no records for, shameful . and to claim hospitals don't keep records ANYMORE? BS. I just got my records from 2001 from a hospital. You are supposed to use evidence, sir. Not your opinion. Not the made up recollections of a liar. I already think your client is a liar so you definitely don't want to enter his lies as evidence. If you can't find evidence, don't make it up.

If you treat every suspicious death like a murder from day one, you will collect physical evidence, you won't have to rely on circumstantial evidence. I lived in Kansas for a few years. It doesn't surprise me that it took them so long to turn to science in this case or any other.

And for anyone who says well that's just how he reacted under pressure... listen carefully to when they accuse him of killing his wife. He is more than capable of showing emotion under stress. The problem is the emotion is self-preservation. "That's how a narcissist do".

So much is made by how people react. But if you LISTEN to this man describe what happened...there was no way he is innocent. No way that just after your wife killed herself and then basically put you and your sons' lives in danger you are that emotionless. Yes everyone reacts differently...but they actually REACT. The police claim that he was acting like he was in a confessional booth over how he caused his wife to kill herself. I didn't get that at all. When you confess there's emotion to it. They were being told a narrative... A story he had practiced ahead of time.
