Jill shuddered, remembering the looks on the jurors’ faces, when Jennifer pointed at her, stating, “I saw her standing there with a knife in one hand, sipping sangria with the other, while her husband laid there bleeding.”

Tried and found guilty, she was sentenced to life in prison. Yet now, fifteen years later, Jill was up for parole. “I don’t deserve your pardon,” she said sincerely, “just as I didn’t deserve God’s mercy, and yet, He forgave me anyway. Therefore, no matter what you decide, I will spend the rest of my life serving Christ.” She was a changed woman.
