    sounds like she didn't like sharing, seriously sounds like she is mentally abused and had enough. NOt right to shoot him should have just let him go and change the locks. IMO

    Hi, mom3dd,
    I agree with you. You can't just kill someone because they're a jerk.

    I guess not....a lot of mean people would be dead if that were the case.

    I'd have told him to go get his wife and bring her over. She could do his laundry and cook for him, instead of me.

    From August 2008:

    http://articles.philly.com/2008-08-1...n-wife-apology

    Portrayed as both an abused wife and a villain who killed her husband to keep his second wife from getting their fortune, Morton was sentenced yesterday to eight to 20 years in prison.

    The 48-year-old grandmother had pleaded guilty to third-degree murder in April.

    Montgomery County Judge William R. Carpenter said he recognized that Morton had been abused as a child and by her husband, and had lost a 13-year-old daughter in 2001. But he said he believed the couple's millions, which came from a malpractice lawsuit after their daughter's death, had played a big part in her decision to murder her husband.
