Wife runs over husband with SUV

It seems that courts are always making excuses for crazy things that crazy women do. Here is the latest example:
Well, perhaps ten times would be premeditate then? The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court on Tuesday, May 24, in a rare use of its powers ruled that a women who ran over her husband five times with a minivan should not be convicted of first-degree murder according to the Boston Globe.

According to the court, apparently the woman’s mental issues were responsible for the way she killed Richard Rutkowski. Even though the wife called her husband “retarded” and predicted killing him by saying something like: “You will be dead very soon”, the court did not believe this was evidence of premeditation.
The jury decided that it was premeditated murder.
