I went to bed after the first hour, she was just too weird for me to watch. I never heard of this case before. I just wanted to shake her, it must have been very difficult to interview someone who was "somewhere else". I'll have to read up on what became of her.

She took an Alford plea,  I think to avoid the death penalty and got life w/o possibility of parole. Her daughter got I think 45 years.

 

She's a narcissistic sociopath with no regard for the life of others. I'm sure she was diagnosed in prison.

The mother told police in an interview that she felt trapped in an unhappy life and then went online to seek ways to to kill with antifreeze. She hated her husband and thought of her son as "worst than a pest". She was upset with one of her daughters for not having a job. 

 

The other daughter agreed with her mother about the plans to kill the members of that family.

 

Life in prison for both the mother and daughter.

Deborah Roberts has the patience of a saint!. This interview and her interview with Anna Delvey shows how patient she is. I think I would have bopped both of them upside the head. 

 

This woman was so void of human emotions and honestly a horrible human. Why not just get a divorce. How was she a nurse? 

 

From seeing how broken up her husband's friend was he must have been a good person.  Very sad episode.

That woman was about as loony as a person can be.  She was, however, an expert at evading questions.  She gave a response to every question asked of her but didn't answer a single one.  I wish I'd kept notes for future use.

We recorded it on the DVR and will watch later today.  

 

She sounds like a real piece of work.

 

Last night, we watched a Dateline story about a young woman, married and had a baby.  She kept on getting sick and more sick as time went on and ended up in the ER.  

 

This story was another one that was poisoning, by thallium.

 

Thank God, she had a great doctor who was able to pinpoint the diagnosis and saved her life.  It turned out it was her husband who had 2 girlfriends and wanted her dead.  

 

They interviewed her and she is doing so much better.

@HisElk1    Thanks....he died in 2016 but I just can't bring myself to change the picture.  I'm afraid nobody would recognize me.
