Deadly Wives: Tyler Patton killer her husband, Edward Patton Jr. for the insurance money

dvawareness3From Tyler Block-Patton’s appeal:

On January 16, 2001, at 9:31 p.m., the Overland Park Police Department responded to a 911 call made by the defendant.   She was inside her vehicle across the street from the residence she had shared with her husband, Ed Patton, Jr. She told officers that her husband had been sick with the flu and had wanted her to stay elsewhere.   She stopped by the residence and entered through the garage, noticing debris and drawers thrown around and items scattered in the stairway.   As she started up the stairs she heard a noise which scared her so she ran outside and called the police.

The responding officers entered the residence through the unlocked front door and noticed debris scattered throughout the house.   Ed Patton’s body was discovered in an upstairs bedroom which was filled with the odor of a decaying body.   He was lying on his back in bed with a blanket up to his neck, and his arms were down to his sides.   A second blood-soaked blanket was placed over his head, the headboard was splattered with blood, and a piece of his skull was lying up against the blanket.   The victim’s face was so bloody and swollen that it was unidentifiable.

Dr. Michel Handler conducted the autopsy and testified that the victim had been struck at least eight times in the face and skull and did not have any defensive injuries on his hands and arms to indicate that he was awake during the attack.   Four small pieces of dark wood were found in his hair and face, which were later identified as part of a bloody 2-by-4 piece of wood found on the back porch of the residence.   He ruled the cause of death a homicide and opined that the victim had been dead for at least 48 hours prior to discovery.   Pathologist Dr. Thomas Bennett reviewed the autopsy report, photographs, interviews, and investigative reports and opined that the victim died either the late evening of January 14 or the early morning hours of January 15, 2001.

Marijuana and drug paraphernalia were found in the basement of the home.   Evidence technician Andy Black opined that the extent of drugs discovered was consistent with personal use rather than someone involved in the sale of drugs.   Officers discovered a pill bottle in back of the residence near a gate containing six different types of medication and three empty pill bottles inside the residence in the trash.

The defendant was interviewed by Detective Bobby Jo Hohnholt on January 17, 2001.   The detective testified over objection that the defendant had recent cuts on her hands during this interview.   Initially, the defendant told the detective that she cut herself while sanding cabinets but later said the cuts were from razor blades during a failed suicide attempt.   At trial, the defendant said the cuts were from razors and screwdrivers she used while remodeling cabinets.

During this interview, the defendant characterized her relationship in a positive manner, indicating that the victim was the best man ever, that he had her on a pedestal, that she received anything she wanted, and that their marriage only got better over time.   However, a January 2, 2001, tape-recorded argument between the defendant and the victim was discovered in the residence that indicated otherwise.

During the recorded argument, the victim indicated he thought the defendant wanted to commit suicide, and the defendant then said that she did not love him and wanted to end the relationship, that she was unhappy with their current residence and the amount of money the victim made, and that she planned to immediately move to a second home they had recently purchased.   At trial, the defendant claimed for the first time that this fight was precipitated by her observing the victim using cocaine and that the tape recording was turned on well into the fight.   The defendant moved to the new house on January 3, 2001, taking most of the contents of the marital residence with her.

The defendant told the detective that on Monday, January 15, 2001, she stayed home to work on remodeling her new house because it was a holiday.   The victim called her at about 10 a.m. saying that he missed her and wished they could be together.   She went shopping at Name Brand Clothing or Home Depot but made no purchases.   She then drove by the victim’s residence but did not stop.   At trial, she said that she stopped by the residence to pick up some articles and put clothes in the dryer.   The victim told her not to bother him for a few days because he was sick and wanted to get well, and he asked her to take care of the real estate calls as they came in.   She purchased a microwave at Sears at 5:27 p.m. that day, went to Walmart, and arrived home at her new house after 9 p.m.

On Tuesday, January 16, 2001, the defendant met with an employee of Drywall Basements to get an estimate on basement repairs around 10 a.m. and then drove by the victim’s house on her way to a bank.   The time on her bank receipt was 12:56 p.m. She went to a library and printing shop, although she did not have a receipt from either place.   She purchased keys from a lock and key store at 1:36 p.m. She went to Lowe’s but made no purchases there either, and she went to Burlington Coat Factory to purchase a pair of work jeans at 3:50 p.m.

She met with her visiting parents at their hotel between 4:30 and 5 p.m. The defendant and her parents subsequently drove to her new residence, passing the victim’s residence on the way.   Although the defendant thought it was unusual that the house appeared dark, she did not stop.   Her parents stayed for about an hour, and then the defendant went to Home Depot to buy several items so she would have an excuse to stop by the victim’s home.   The receipt showed the transaction took place at 8:39 p.m. After being told that the 911 call was placed at 9:27 p.m., she could not recall whether she went straight to the victim’s home or stopped at her new home first.   At trial, she remembered that she had run back into Home Depot to look at other items.   She left the victim nine voice mail messages throughout the day the victim’s body was found.

Deadly Wives: Rosalina Edmondson had her ex-husband, Richard Manthie, kill her current husband, William Edmondson, for the insurance money

dvawareness3From Rosalina Edmondson’s appeal:

On December 29, 1981, police found the body of William Edmondson in a remote, wooded area of Kitsap County. Edmondson had been shot four times in the head, his chest had been crushed, and his nose broken. Drag marks led directly from his body to sets of boot prints and tire tracks.
Edmondson married Rosalina Manthie, an immigrant from the Philippines, on August 21, 1981. The day after the wedding, the Edmondsons drove from Washington to Montana, where Ms. Edmondson visited her former husband, Richard Manthie, an inmate of the Montana State Prison.
In September 1981, the Edmondsons bought $150,000 life insurance policies on each other’s lives. Her policy’s sole beneficiary was her daughter by Manthie; Edmondson’s policy named his wife and the same daughter as beneficiaries. The Edmondsons then bought a house for $60,000 near Lake Symington; Ms. Edmondson already owned a house at Long Lake, but did not allow her husband to use it. The Edmondsons bought mortgage insurance for the Lake Symington house; the policy provided that if either of them died before repaying the mortgage, the insurance company would pay the mortgage balance.
Between August and December of 1981, Ms. Edmondson visited Manthie at the Montana State Prison several times. She actively supported his attempts to get parole, representing herself to parole authorities as his present wife. Manthie finally got parole on December 17, 1981, and immediately flew to Seattle. Ms. Edmondson paid for his airline ticket and met him at the airport. She and Manthie spent the night at a hotel and then went to her Long Lake house for the weekend.
Edmondson was seen the evening of December 21, 1981, driving from the Lake Symington house with Ms. Edmondson in his red Gremlin. Early the next morning, Ms. Edmondson was seen at the Long Lake house washing the Gremlin’s interior. Her Long Lake neighbors noticed smoke issuing from the chimney of the house; they later testified that the smoke was too black to be woodsmoke. Ms. Edmondson asked to use her neighbors’ washing machine, something she had never done before.
When police found Edmondson’s body 8 days later, they summoned Ms. Edmondson to the police station for questioning. She denied involvement in her husband’s death and gave permission for officers to search her Long Lake house and the Gremlin. The next day she drove to Seattle to visit her lawyer. She instructed him to file claims on her husband’s insurance policies.
Searching the Long Lake house, detective found Manthie’s boots, which matched the prints at the place where Edmondson’s body was found. They also found bits of glass, of a rare type, near a smashed door, and drops of blood on the floor of the Long Lake house. They found evidence that clothing had been burned both in the fireplace and outdoors. In the Gremlin, they found glass particles matching those found in the house, blood flakes of Edmondson’s rare blood type, and hairs that were similar to Manthie’s.
Manthie was arrested and charged with murdering Edmondson. Ms. Edmondson unsuccessfully tried to obtain his release on bail. While awaiting trial, Manthie became friendly with Jesse Noble, a cellmate. He told Noble that he and Ms. Edmondson had agreed to kill Edmondson in order to collect on the insurance policies. Manthie related that he had shot Edmondson while in the Gremlin and that Ms. Edmondson had helped him dispose of the body and destroy evidence of the murder. Manthie also related part of the story to Fred Stocker, another cellmate.
Ms. Edmondson was charged with Edmondson’s murder in June 1982. She was represented at trial by two lawyers, one of whom is fluent in Tagalog, her native language. In addition, she was permitted to use an interpreter when she took the stand for cross examination.
In exchange for a favorable plea agreement on unrelated criminal charges, Noble testified against Ms. Edmondson, repeating what Manthie told him about the murder. Manthie did not testify. The parties stipulated that he would claim his privilege against self-incrimination and thus was unavailable as a witness. After 3 weeks of trial, the jury convicted Ms. Edmondson of aggravated murder in the first degree.
