So, were onhatbut, ncy, do you a that the D doesn't matter? I mean, so som says they were on vacation -- Doesn't mean a hill of ans. I mean, look at Y own family photos. Me always standing lookinf in other direction,urse, so that means nothing. L tk about a startling defense laid out for himself. He ss his wif killed the children and tn he ickly. Lievable? It's not a defense. It's basically saying I sd be convicted of manslaughter, not because it' not a defense to say, oh, she did this antherefore I killed her. At's basicallying I acted he heatfassion as a lt of a lesser conv Yeah, yeah, he could gue that he should get involunt or voluntary manslaughter. Because H so Ang and acted in a rage but illy think if youlyze the time line and the physical evidence of the es, that defense will not wort trial. Tough nse.
