Can Forensics Prove Woman Shot Self After Attacking Husband?

"I have no choices, I'm going to sign [for divorce]," she wrote. "However, I'm so, so scared. ... I have nothing. I have no idea what will happen. I'll live one day at a time. The only thing I know for sure is that it will be extremely painful and difficult. ... One of the things that will be most difficult is to have someone else enjoying the fruits of our labor. ... Bottom line I cannot stay like this. ... I cannot eat. I cannot sleep. I cannot breathe, ... I'm in a place where I cannot sustain myself. I'm not Linda."

Anderson said, "She wasn't going to have her life. It was going to be a very different life for her. And the writings that were found in her room betray a woman that was absolutely desperate."

In the jury box, Linda Dolloff's private writings took on the weight of her own voice. She never took the stand, but the words on her computer may have explained the motive she denied having.

"The Corinthians document had a great impact on me," said one juror, on condition of anonymity. "She sounded very confused, and frustrated, and left out, pushed away."

The jury deliberated across a two-day period.
