    From the article Tiger linked-

    "Defense attorneys say Patel did nothing wrong and that her husband forced her to help him commit suicide. They argue he was under pressure and money was tight so much so he couldn't pay his bills."

    Yeah, because everyone who wants to commit suicide picks the most HORRIBLY PAINFUL way to do it!
    Burns over 99 percent of his body.
    Sometimes I wish for the days when the punishment fit the crime (burn her).

    Jurors hear from first responders who found Bimal Patel severely burned, screaming

    5 p.m. update: On the stand Wednesday, emergency responders said that when they arrived to the North Austin apartment of Shriya and Bimal Patel on April 17, 2012, they found Bimal Patel severely burned and screaming, “Why would she do this?”

    Bimal Patel, 29, was rushed to North Austin Medical Center, where he was put on a breathing tube and another emergency physician heard him ask: “Why would she do this to me? Why would anyone do this to me?”

    The testimony came on the second day of a capital murder trial for Shriya Patel, who prosecutors say splashed her husband with gasoline and lit him on fire. If convicted, she faces life in prison without parole.

    "Prosecutors held up a long blue scarf with a big piece missing as if it had been cut from the fabric. They say the scarf matches pieces collected from the sprinklers and smoke detectors. A receipt from Wal-Mart shows nylon rope, masking tape, a lighter two candlesticks were purchased a little more than an hour before the incident occurred."

    OK, on general principal I refuse to shop at WalMart as it is, but I am starting to suspect it is considered the "Murderers Warehouse".
    Do they ALL shop there?!?

    APD Officer Cory Knop is testifying now. If he sounds familiar it's because he also testified in the Brandon Daniel trial last week.

    In response to defense attorneys, officer admits some things didn't add up at the crime scene. #PatelTrial
