By the time Nancy Fredette was able to get to the bedroom where shots rang out on the morning of May 26th, 1977, it was too late. The armed intruder had left through the back door, and her husband lay dying on the bed in their Biddeford, Maine home. He passed away at the hospital later that night, and an investigation for his murder ensued.
Weeks later, Nancy got a surprise when she herself was arrested for the murder of her husband.
The state of Maine vs. Nancy Fredette is one of the most unique cases in Maine criminal history. There was not one, not two, but three trials before the jury found the final verdict largely based on wild circumstantial evidence.
So is Nancy Fredette guilty of murder? What do you think?
