THE REAL JUDGE’S VER­DICT GUILTY

Chat - - Conflicting True-Life -

San­dra Mel­gar had tried so hard to make the killing look like a ter­ri­ble home­r­ob­bery gone wrong. But she’d tried in vain... As the guilty ver­dict was read out, she slumped for­ward and let out a howl. Fam­ily and friends wailed, too.

Weeks later, San­dra Mel­gar was jailed for 27 years for mur­der. But daugh­ter El­iz­a­beth still stood firmly by her mum.

Speak­ing out af­ter the ver­dict, she said, ‘I am pretty out­raged and pretty up­set. This has been a huge mis­car­riage of jus­tice.’
