2nd degree charges? Unwinnable...and she knows it. The feds get six months to sit around and avoid discussing the case for their episode after this fails.
Manslaughter would have been simpler to put into court...but he wouldn’t have gotten more than ten years...which wouldn’t have made anyone with the kid’s family happy.
Manslaughter is where I would have thought they would go.
This falls into “heat of moment” and any murder charge requires malice and forethought.
I don’t see it. But, I am just some back bencher.
