    New Zealand - Philip Nisbet, 47, poisoned, suffocated, Christchurch, 4 May 2009

    The son of New Zealand's 'Black widow' Helen Milner, has sued his mother for framing him, the year before she was charged with killing her husband.

    50-year-old Milner's husband had supposedly committed suicide in 2009, and she was living with her then partner Kasey Woodstock when she encouraged her partner to accuse her 23-year-old son, Adam Kearns, of sending abusive and threatening text messages in March 2010. She already had a protection order against him. Kearns was arrested and held in custody for 17 days, before police discovered the cell phone that the messages came from had been bought by Milner herself. And she'd sent the texts to herself and partner too.

    In 2011, Milner was finally charged with poisoning her husband Philip Nisbet's dinner with the drug Phenergan, and was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 17 years. Now that a Christchurch court has ordered her to pay $55,000 compensation to her son, he says he knows it may be difficult to collect the money but he doesn't care if he has to bankrupt her, or hire a debt collection agency. They are estranged.

    Milner is trying to appeal her murder conviction.

    The son of so-called "Black Widow" murderer Helen Milner, who yesterday won $55,000 from his mum after she framed him and put him behind bars, has launched legal action against police for allegedly failing to properly investigate his case.

    A lawyer for Adam Kearns, 23, yesterday filed a letter with Christchurch Police which documents grievances that officers made "breathtaking" failures in their investigations into claims by Milner before her trial and conviction, that she had received death threats via text from her son.
