    UT - Uta Von Schwedler, 49, Salt Lake City, 27 Sept 2011

    Mom found dead, judge just gave Dad custody of the two youngest although oldest think he killed her.

    "A long list of circumstantial evidence was collected, according to lawsuit, including cuts and bruises that appeared to be defensive wounds, blood found in the woman's bedroom, on the edge of a sink and a windowsill in the bathroom, as well as part of a bloody shoe print leading away from the bedroom. When von Schwedler's body was found, she was barefoot, according to court documents.

    The Wall children, who were staying with their father the night before their mother's body was discovered, also contend when they got up during the early morning hours of Sept. 27, 2011, neither their dad nor his car were there, according to court records.

    When they saw him again later that day, he went to get his car detailed at 8:30 a.m. and told the attendant to "pay particular attention to the pink colored stain on/in the back seat," court records state."

    Bless those poor kids. How devastating.

    A beautiful memorial page to Doctor Von Schwedler. Photos of her and her siblings as kids amongst the other photos.

    When I read the article it reminded me of the Powell case. There isn't much information out there, but what evidence, etc that has been reported makes me concerned for the children. Jmo

    This article goes back to five months after Uta's death.

    Xanax in her system although she did not take Xanax, cut, and four photo albums for one of each of her beloved children. The albums were a bone of contention in the custody case.

    These children have been through complete hell.

    "compassionate healers" in the news---Doctors & Death!

    WOW, so here's another case of possible assisted death by a physician----and again it's the WIFE or EX-WIFE as the decedent!



    http://wildabouttrial.com/one_off/sl...lty-to-murder/


    "The 49-year-old John Brickman Wall entered his plea Monday morning in a state court in Salt Lake City." UTAH, again!

    "A medical examiner ruled she died from drowning as well as a fatal amount of Xanax but couldn’t determine if it was a homicide or suicide." SUSPICIOUS circumstances, again!

    " Pelle Wall, the couple’s oldest son who believes his father is guilty, sat in the front row Monday." OFFSPRING not SUPPORTING DAD, again!

    Body discovery site: bathroom tub. BATHTUB, again!

    Additional medications "on board". PRESCRIPTION MEDS, again!


    "Copy-Catitis" must be the disease du jour in the Utah medical community! (tongue in cheek comment, folks!)

    I'm posting for the first time here.

    This guy was my kids' pediatrician. I was absolutely floored when I first heard that he might be suspected in his ex-wife's murder. He was wonderful with my children! The dissonance between that person and the one who likely killed a woman is just unnerving.

    My daughter had a well-child exam just after von Schwedler was killed; I noticed he had a deep red mark on one eye (but I hadn't heard a thing about the death). The medication I use for my insomnia also came up in conversation once (I think I was worrying that my child might have the same problems I do), and he seemed strangely and adamantly against any kind of use of it. I wonder if that's related to his claims that he doesn't know what he does when he's asleep when he's asleep, since one of the known side effects is bizarre nighttime behavior. I don't know. I'm just fascinated by this case, and have read all of the articles about it that I can find, which are surprisingly few.

    This will be a fascinating trial. Wall claims he will not accept a plea deal.

    Agree! I see in one of the older articles linked that her husband had primary custody of all of their children and they were all old enough to have had their own input. Yet one of the sons (at least) is saying he thinks his father did it. Wonder how the Dad got primary custody of all of them. Very unusual, imo.

    Wall's exwife, Uta Von Schwedler, had some prestigious credentials.

    Did she travel a lot in her job? I wouldn't think that being a college professor would require a lot of travel, so just a wild guess... Or was she in a different job when they divorced?

    Seems to me, a peds doc would be the one "on call" and such, and that would put him in a position of having to leave home at odd hours if he were on call. Just another guess...

    Yes, Karmady, it seems unusual to me, too...
