-- the hour and this is a -- defense.
The you have definitely never heard before now on Miami a Miami excuse me on Monday a Miami real estate developer takes the stand.
For the death of his wife in a trial that begins -- the medical examiner says -- the husband strangled his wife he says he didn't do it.
And here is the real hits he says that the spray tan actually killed her.
Let's ask criminal defense attorney Arthur Dow up about this are there lay out this case for -- the -- -- Well there's a lot of odd things components about this -- first of all this woman dies in 2007 they don't claim and a homicide until two years later which is.
I don't know I don't think I've ever heard of that amount of time taking place.
-- basically what the medical examiner says is its deep pressure to the throat of the esophagus and it commands.
Examiner believes that she was strangled -- Jewish strangled by and another human being is really what the medical examiner right.
The defense that came out was that she -- is spray tanning.
And that this of arsenic contained in the the chemical and -- was -- -- our outdoor event.
And she like hit her car that area over there and that's where they're going now a judge has already said me.
And I don't think so and in the bail application could be tried to use that defense is the judge to get her to get -- -- battle right pending trial.
The judges they get that some not get -- -- really short bill.
Base that what Heather when you have twelve jurors and you're gonna have.
And other experts who are backing him up on this but you have -- family.
You know a little luck let's get to that one in just a second okay because it seems like the defense is just throwing anything at the wall hoping that something will stick and that was something a little similar to what we -- on Casey Anthony case.
In the Casey Anthony he's it was even more throwing things at the wall here they're actually giving the jury alternative theory they're like -- After this move into the -- exactly what happened she gets can't you -- -- she passed out she falls she clips are neck and -- there.
Okay now here is something -- -- a roll twist that's gonna surprise some people.
Her family the deceased wife's family is actually backing in the husband yet -- tell what -- is a case.
Well it gives you really gives the defense something they -- Not with reasonable doubt the biggest say -- gentlemen of the jury you know this man for the -- he's on the stand but these other witnesses who testified on his -- -- -- -- as what their whole life.
And -- -- telling you that there's no way that this guy could have done it.
And you get the other the other and you just hope that two people say I think they're right -- -- -- hung jury and maybe that you can plea -- -- case that more in the Casey Anthony case thinks they not -- until.
Like you know experts claim anything as we side in the Casey Anthony case where do you see this thing -- an -- sometimes do -- -- I -- -- -- -- -- -- -- engaging that that really -- the -- -- there.
-- way of thinking.
You never know what's gonna happen in ten years ago when I was a little let's experiences that you -- -- your work now.
I never say -- throw anything out monsoonal stack as it's cinematic about Arlington well you know it it.
Edit your particularly handsome like Diane yeah front of the jury and particularly charming both sides really early in the morning on a car that we got a little bit about you had a thanks a lot -- How much kick out of an have a great weekend just about ten minutes before any.
