I just saw the episode of the show Indefensible involving this case and the "expert witness" who help seal the acquittal. It reminded me a little too much of the Preppie Murder case, and the defense attorney's thorough use of character assassination upon the victim. If anything good came out of it, the murderer did spent every second of his given sentence in prison- after pleading guilty to first degree manslaughter after the first trial ended in a mistrial.
You say it, you even think it, you can have it. Are we beginning to see the possibilities here?
"...Steinberg was charged with killing his wife by stabbing her 26 times. He did not deny killing her, but claimed he was sleepwalking at the time and not sane, and therefore not responsible for her death in a legal sense. Bolstered by defense testimony from psychiatrists, he was acquitted by the jury."
The name does not ring a bell but I recall a Forensic Files episode similar to this. *internet search* Ah so it was the Scott Falater case.
