    Will anybody else be following this trial?

    Nicole was allegedly raped and murdered by a church custodian, Matthew Burton, while she was working there late one night, preparing for the preschool class she taught. Burton has been in prison in Maryland, where her body was found, fighting extradition back to Delaware, where the murder occurred, because Delaware has the death penalty and MD does not. He lost that fight.

    I knew Nicole and her in-laws, although not well. She was so sweet. A very loving mother. Her girls and her husband have suffered such a great loss with this man ripping her from their lives :(.

    Here are some interviews from late last month with the family of Nicole Bennett and the Delaware Department of Justice.

    Ultimately, prosecutors were worried about the possibility of an acquittal and that's what led them to the plea deal.
