BISHOP MASS MURDER TRIAL BEGINS @ 10:00 AM TODAY: Now that Dr. Amy Bishop has pled guilty to the Huntsville Alabama campus rampage she planned and executed in 2010, she no longer has to fear the death penalty; nor will she be able to bog down Alabama's cash-strapped justice system with proving her insanity defense. Sane or not, doesn't matter anymore. But because she faces, instead, life without parole for slaying three of her fellow biology professors and wounding three more, she must still sit through an abbreviated trial for sentencing purposes. That finally begins today.
Whatever the final legal disposition of this contest should be, it's not the last we'll hear from or about The Butcher of Braintree, since she'll also have to face trial in Massachusetts soon for the 1986 murder of her younger brother Seth. Breaking news regarding that matter, and all other Bishop updates, will continue to be posted here on Killing Killers.
