    I followed the white case closely. The killer didn't find his wife on the couch embracing her lover, a next-door neighbor.
    The info that came out in court is that he found his wife on the living room floor copulating with an unknown assailant he assumed was raping his wife. The killer had been in bed & got up to get a drink of water late at night. He didn't see the face of the man, only the back of his head.
    Trained in the military, he went back to the bedroom to get his gun & shot the guy. He said in court he assumed the guy was an intruder raping his wife.
    The killer's wife said she was drunk and didn't remember what happened. She was happy that her husband was found not guilty & they celebrated by going to the Waffle House to get her favorite meal.
    Didn't follow the black woman's case closely enough to comment, but it seems she should have been acquitted.
    The white case happened recently & got a lot of publicity locally. The Miami case happened awhile back & didn't get as much publicity in St. Pete, FL.

      He shot him in a jealous rage. It's ridiculous that he was acquitted.

      He used Roxie Hart's defense from "Chicago." She was lying and so is he.

      The killer's wife said she was drunk and didn't remember what happened. She was happy that her husband was found not guilty & they celebrated by going to the Waffle House to get her favorite meal. Note to self don't ever have an affair with a married woman at least make sure about the weapon inventory in her home.

      This makes about as much sense as Mike Huckabee on mescaline. - Prodigal 2-6-2008
