    I caught the tail end of the trial..not enough to really catch enough of the story though. Is the jury still deliberating? I quit watching and took a nap around 1 today, so I don't know.

    Judge just declared a mistrial. They still couldn't reach a verdict after 12 1/2 hours.

    From June 2013:

    http://www.knoxnews.com/news/local-n...ath-conviction

    The conviction of Raynella Dossett Leath for the 2003 shooting death of her husband will stand, a three-judge panel of the Tennessee Court of Appeals has ruled...

    In a second trial, she was convicted and sentenced to life in prison, with a chance for parole...

    Dossett Leath was the widow of Knox County Attorney General Ed Dossett, who was terminally ill with cancer when he was reportedly trampled to death by cattle he was feeding at his farm in July 1992. She had also been charged with murder in his death, but was never tried. Prosecutors dropped that charge immediately after she was convicted in the death of her second husband.

    A Knox County woman who was convicted in the death of one of her two deceased husbands has been released from custody. In April, Judge Paul Summers tossed the first-degree murder conviction in Leath's second husband's death and awarded her a new trial because of the drug use of the Knox County judge that presided over the trial.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    Update -
    "A judge stopped just short of ruling on a motion that hadn't even been filed, but he was pretty clear this week on his preference on the locale from which citizens asked to judge a suspected black widow should come - Knox County."
    Snip
    "I don't see any reason we can't pick a jury in Knox County, Tenn.," Summers said Monday. "I plan to try this case in Knox County."

    He quickly added that he would still entertain the defense motion if it's filed."

    Summers set a May 2, 2017, trial date.
