Broward grand jury indicts Florida man for wife's murder

A grand jury in Broward County has indicted a 39-year-old Miramar man for the murder of his wife of 13 years. What makes this case somewhat unusual is that the woman's body has not been found. In many cases, the remains of the victim and the coroner's report are critical pieces of evidence in a murder case. Without a body, the defense can make the argument that there is reasonable doubt a murder took place. Nonetheless, the grand jury deliberated for only 23 minutes before returning an indictment on first-degree murder charges.

Florida's 'stand your ground' law applied unevenly

Florida's "stand your ground" law has received a lot of national attention and generated a great deal of controversy in the past year. The controversy centers on a high-profile case in which a man invoked the law following the shooting of a teenager. A recent news report, however, indicates that many people facing felony charges of murder and assault are going to prison without invoking their rights under the law.

Grandmother takes plea deal in Florida murder case

There are only two available penalties for first-degree murder in Florida: life in prison or death. If the accused is able to work out a plea agreement that results in a lesser sentence, that is often to their advantage, depending on their chances at trial. But in the case of a 73-year-old grandmother who was facing a murder charge for allegedly drowning her grandson, the 21 and a half year prison sentence obtained in a plea deal may effectively be a life sentence anyway.
