Re: “Gaile Owens has been on Tennessee’s death row for 25 years for setting her husband’s murder in motion, but a jury never heard the whole story.

She has a history of deceit with the numerous forgeries and thefts. My guess is the sister learned more about her after having to take over once the woman was in jail. She probably heard it all from the sons, most likely of how the mother treated them as children. My guess is, it wasn't great. Anyone that self-absorbed and dishonest probably wasn't a great mother.

She admitted to spending months looking for someone to kill him. That's not an abused woman. That's a murderer. Why didn't she take the time to take the kids and leave? Most likely because the man she had murdered took care of her and bailed her out time and time again. Her actions that night point that she would have known the killer was there...

Now the son is forgiving her. My guess is she hasn't changed, and he'll find that out in the end. There's something about this woman that doesn't sit right. She may have been abused as a child, or abused as a wife, but she's an abuser to her own children when she went out and hired a hit man. It's not like she was defending herself while her husband hit her. This took months to plan and she kept going back to find someone.

How people can stand up for this woman makes no sense to me. Abuse or not, she kept going back to find a hitman. This was a continual action where she would have been aware of what she was doing.
