Anndrea Jacobs just took the stand. . . in prison garments, and took oath to tell the truth.
A lying liar who lies. . . can she tell the truth?!!

PORTLAND, Ore. — After the defense in Nancy Crampton Brophy's murder trial rested its case Wednesday, the state called in a rebuttal witness who was incarcerated with Crampton Brophy in Multnomah County jail for several months.
[...]
When Overstreet asked if Jacobs had ever asked how Dan Brophy died, she replied that she did and that Crampton Brophy told her he was shot twice in the heart. She said Crampton Brophy fully stretched out her arms and said, "it was about this far."
Jacobs told the prosecutor that Crampton Brophy initially started to say "I" instead of "it," but that she appeared to have misspoken and corrected herself.
[...]
Jacobs said she did not willingly choose to be involved in the trial, and that she was brought from Texas to Oregon only based on the information she provided detectives.
She said that she has received threats from fellow inmates since she was set to testify in the trial.

I tend to believe Jacobs' testimony, I think if she was lying she would have made it more damning.

This was an entire morning of evil. The prosecutor pretends he's Joe Average. He spent yesterday mumbling, hemming, and hawing. He's used this technique with every defense witness. You'd think he was incompetent, and then he comes out with STUFF....

If you listen to one piece of this trial, check this piece out:
At about the 2:28:28 mark NB says:

"I don't even know how to defend myself against the truth."

The testimony of a last-minute witness expected to offer bombshell evidence
that romance writer Nancy Crampton Brophy inadvertently admitted to killing her chef husband largely fizzled Wednesday as the murder trial nears an end.

Crampton Brophy’s former jail bunkmate instead described the comment as a simple verbal error.


hmmmmmm.

Retrograde amnesia versus “convenient” amnesia. A clear financial motive or a circumstantial case that ignored another possible killer. A ruthless manipulator or a loving wife.

The lead prosecutor and defense attorneys crossed swords several times Monday as they tried to persuade a jury to see their side in the final days of romance writer Nancy Crampton Brophy’s murder trial in the killing of her husband, Oregon Culinary Institute instructor Daniel Brophy.
[...]
Closing statements concluded Monday, to be followed by the state’s rebuttal Tuesday. Jurors are expected to start deliberations later Tuesday.

Crampton Brophy did not speak during Monday’s proceedings, but held several whispered conversations with her sister during breaks in the trial. If convicted of second-degree murder, she faces the prospect of life in prison with a minimum of 25 years behind bars.
