Jensen Guilty of murder in wifes poison

Post  Eli on Thu Feb 21, 2008 4:37 pm

A jury in Wisconsin has found Mark Jensen guilty of first-degree murder in the 1998 poisoning death of his wife, after a trial that included the slain woman's haunting letter from the grave. developing story:The jury's verdict came nearly a decade after Julie Jensen was found dead in her bed. The cause of death: Poisoning by ethylene glycol, the main ingredient in antifreeze. Julie Jensen, the victim, had given a neighbor a letter pointing an accusing finger at her husband should anything happen to her. She also made foreboding comments to police and to her son's teacher, saying she suspected that her husband was trying to kill her. Her letter, read aloud in court, said in part: "I pray I'm wrong + nothing happens ... but I am suspicious of Mark's suspicious behaviors + fear for my early demise," the letter says. After the verdict, jurors told reporters that the letter gave them "a clear road map" to conviction, as one female juror phrased it. Mark Jensen, 48, was charged in 2002 with first-degree murder in the December 1998 death of his 40-year-old wife. Prosecutors alleged that Jensen was having an affair and poisoned his wife so he could be free of her. The defense says Julie Jensen was despondent about the affair, killed herself and tried to frame her husband. I believe that this guy is a sick freak and he's going to pay for what he did to his wife by the guys he meet in jail. He's going to suffer the consequences for the rest of his life. Why would you kill your own wife and go and have an affair with the poison doctor. He's someone crazy!http://www.cnn.com/2008/CRIME/02/21/jensen.verdict/index.html[/url]http://www.cnn.com/2008/CRIME/02/21/jensen.verdict/index.html[/url]

Guilty for poisoning wife

What a terrible thing to do to someone, kill them slowly with something used in antifreeze. I couldnít imagine having to be a part of that jury having to listen to all the evidence and then decide this mans fate. Yet, I believe that he is guilty and deserves to be in jail for life. What woman would kill herself and then try to blame it on her husband, even if he was cheating. In that case it would have made more sense to kill him, if anything, although not appropriate. I just donít understand how a defense can come with a reason like that.
