Cynthia didn’t act like a grieving widow, but did that make her a killer?


The verdict

Cynthia as she walked free from prison.

Cynthia was granted a new trial after a judge ruled that her defence lawyer made mistakes that deprived her of a fair trial.

New tests were done on Todd’s tissue samples. This time no trace of poison was found.

The judge ruled the original sample had been contaminated and all charges against Cynthia were dropped. She walked free in April 2008.
