An episode where law and tabloids collide. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurie_Bembenek

I vaguely remembered the name. Must have died of complications from having the Hep C virus. Slow and painful death. RIP

This was a huge case in Milwaukee, my hometown. She wasn't able to clear her name before she died. I hope she gets the pardon.

Channel 4 (NBC) in Milwaukee broadcast comments from her ex on the news last night. They neglected to mention that he'd lied during the investigation as to his whereabouts during the time of the murder.

Is the wiki true on that point? I can't believe NBC'd run that interview where he said he was disappointed she didn't confess when he has his own issues here.

Pardon? That would be an outrage. Then years and lots of drama after being convicted, she pleaded "no contest" versus presenting all of her supposed "new evidence" in the second trial. She wasn't able to clear her name because ... she was guilty.

Um, no, she was terrified and strapped for cash after being railroaded by the cops the first time.

The only eyewitness to the crime has always claimed the shooter was a man.

I remember when this happened.
She was railroaded.
Her husband was a cop in that town too. The blue line held firm.
They protected him.

I always tho't she was railroaded as well.

Sorry, no one should be Pardoned for murder. Exonerated would be the proper route.
