State High Court Denies Appeal Of Knoller Dog-Mauling Murder Conviction
Posted: 8:25 pm PST December 1, 2010
SAN FRANCISCO -- The California Supreme Court Wednesday kept in place a second-degree murder conviction for a San Francisco woman whose dogs fatally mauled an apartment neighbor in 2001. The high court's seven justices, at their weekly conference in San Francisco, declined to hear an appeal by Marjorie Knoller, 55, the owner of two powerful, untrained Presa Canario dogs that attacked and killed Diane Whipple in an apartment building hallway on Jan. 26, 2001. The court's action makes final a state appeals court decision in August that upheld Knoller's murder conviction and sentence of 15 years to life in prison. Knoller, a former lawyer, is now serving that sentence at Valley State Prison for Women in Chowchilla. Her husband and law partner, Robert Noel, who was not present at the attack, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and was released on parole after serving nearly three years of his four-year sentence. .

I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.
