    IL - Twila Wiley, 21, pregnant, fatally shot, Waterloo, 7 Aug 2003

    http://www.ksdk.com/news/news_articl...?storyid=83683

    James Wiley, 27, of Waterloo is accused of fatally shooting his wife, Twila Wiley, 21, and staging the crime scene to appear as though the woman had killed herself. Investigators discovered the victim's body on the ground of Konarcik Park in Waterloo in August 2003, and early on considered the possibility of suicide, but quickly changed their minds and initiated what would be a year-long murder investigation.

    Testimony Begins In Trial Of Illinois Husband Charged With Killing Pregnant Wife

    Prosecutors are expected to begin calling witnesses Wednesday in the first degree murder trial of James Wiley, 27, the Waterloo, Illinois man accused of killing his wife and their unborn child more than two years ago and then staging the crime scene to suggest a suicide.

    Jurors were selected in the case late Tuesday. Opening statements got underway Wednesday morning in the trial which also includes charges against Wiley that consist of intentionally causing the death of the unborn child, concealment of a murder, and obstruction of justice.

    If convicted, Wiley could spend the rest of his life in prison.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    After deliberating for nearly six hours, a Monroe County jury found James. C. Wiley not guilty Tuesday in the shooting death of his pregnant wife in a Waterloo park in August 2003.

    There was a gasp in the courtroom gallery as Circuit Judge William Schuwerk read the verdicts: Not guilty on charges of first-degree murder, homicide of an unborn child, concealing a homicide and obstructing justice.

    Oh my God I wonder what kind of evidence LE had? I've never heard of this case so I don't know any facts but I do hope this husband didn't just get away with murder x 2.
