       Tammy Wilson is a free woman after serving 18 months in prison for killing her husband of 30 years back in 2008.

       Wilson claimed all along that it was in self-defense. That her husband William Frankie Wilson was beating her, and had throughout most of their marriage.

       A jury did not believe her and gave her ten years in prison for second degree manslaughter.

       Her family hired a new attorney, Robert Norfleet who immediately found a 911 phone call made my Wilson's family and her admitting to shooting her husband because she was being abused.

       Norfleet also used a retired KSP crime scene investigator who found blood spatter at the scene that proved Wilson's husband was not sitting down but rather attacking Tammy Wilson.

       Commonwealth's Attorney Eddy Montgomery agreed to allow Wilson to be released on condition that her conviction stand and she remain on probation for five years.

      Norfleet says Wilson suffered from Post Traumatic Stress and Battered Abuse Syndrome from the beatings over the years. She's joining a battered and abuse women's group in Somerset.

Wow, so the 911 call was not located by her previous attorney, nor was the blood spatter properly examined. How badly can a case be mishandled! Even a non-expert knows that those two things are crucial. Glad she is free from jail, and from the animal that beat her.
