Stepmom fever goes national

The Kyron Horman case is currently on a tabloid crime show hosted by someone named Nancy Grace on the Headline News cable channel. Nothing new, but they did unearth the mugshot from the stepmom's drunk driving-child endangerment bust from a few years ago.

You must be at least 18 years old or
You are younger than 18 and the person who abused you is at least 18 and

• you are (or were) married to that person or
• you have been in a sexual relationship with that person.

2. Relationship

The person who abused you is:
• your husband, wife or domestic partner
• your former husband, wife, or domestic partner
• an adult with whom you are living (or did live) in a sexual relationship
• an adult with whom you have been in a sexual relationship in the last two years
• an adult related to you by blood, marriage, or adoption
• the parent of your child

3. Abuse

In the last 180 days*, the person who abused you must have:
• physically injured you or
• tried to physically injure you or
• made you afraid that he or she was about to physically injure you or
• made you have sexual relations against your wishes by using force or threats of force.

(*Any time period when the person who abused you was in jail or lived more than 100 miles from your home does not count as part of the 180 day period. This means you may still be able to get a restraining order even if it has been more than 180 days since you were abused.)

4. Ongoing Danger

You are in danger of more abuse very soon, and the person who abused you is a threat to the physical safety of you or your children.

NOTE: A judge cannot give you a restraining order solely for threats to take your children, rude behavior, verbal or emotional abuse, or damaged property unless you were in fear that you were about to be physically injured.

Better move the trial location to the moon because with Nancy Grace on the case, you can bet there will be more tainted jurors than the Portland Metro region can afford to call to jury duty in these economic times.

I don't see there being a trial in this one.

No body + No physical evidence + No confession = No trial

The body will turn up. The pings aren't going anywhere. Damning statements have no doubt been made. I don't see a trial, but I don't see an unsolved case, either.

911 call made by someone in the house and the next day he moves out with the daughter, files for divorce and restraining order. Judge seals the restraining orde so as not to expose sensitive material for the case.

I would say this is going to be as close to a slam dunk case as you can get. If she doesn't commit suicide I bet she'll go for insanity plea due to post partum depression. Two years from now she'll be released due to being "cured" and back on the streets.
