Hammer Killer

The Case

Marissa Devault is convicted of murdering her husband with a hammer. She called the police and told them that someone else killed her husband but later confessed that it was her. She claims that it was in self defense after her husband raped and beat her. The prosecution has testimonial evidence from her boyfriend who claimed that she talked to him about killing her husband so it was premeditated. They also claimed that she was in debt and she killed him to collect insurance money. The blood splatter proves that it was definitely her. We believe that it was murder because there is testimonial evidence from her boyfriend.
