Very well considered, Pete. This is one of the best evaluations one could expect. If the 'visiting the pond' episode tilts the balance of guilt for you this is very respectable.
Now, if we can just find out why the gun was thrown in the edge of the pond and not in the middle (as it can be argued a disposing person would naturally do)and, why that gun did not match all the ammunition, then we might have a more solid case.
But again, well done Pete.

For anyone who claims her innocence..where does common sense come in within your minds and thought process?
Who would come to kill someone and search for gloves to use AFTER they enter the premises? What other reason aside from that being the casing from the round used to kill him would there be a spent casing, in a glove, in the trash? A nurses second nature with gloves is to take them off inside out with the objects she is holding...normally swabs, caps, bandages, etc...in this case a spent casing. A subconscious action that comes from her normal activities, hence why she missed it. Factor in the DNA..her DNA and his. Did the "perpetrator" wear gloves under the gloves to prevent DNA transfer from themselves? Why would they have needed to go the extra step to search for latex gloves at the scene if they already had their own. Also, who in their right mind would keep a set of latex gloves already used...especially a NURSE? That would have to have been the case since that is her DNA explanation.
Second...what would the chances have to be to have a gun used to kill your husband stolen, and the ONLY gun stolen at that, and then end up in the pond of a house that you just so happen to look at purchasing AFTER the event in question? And then, factor in the statistical probability of hearing a "rumor" the gun may be there, and then end up looking for it in the EXACT location it was found, looking NOWHERE else mind you. There are many factors that could have prevented a definitive match, even if it were the exact gun used. Storage between the time of use until it was put into the water, the water itself, etc..but if it weren't the gun used, why would it have been in the pond? Hell of a coincidence.
The fact is, just these factors should convict her in everyone's minds. The probability of adding all of these variables, probabilities, and coincidences and landing on anyone else is a virtual impossibility.
Oh...and has anyone versed in human behavior even watched her eye and facial movements in interviews? I have a background in interrogations and analysis...I could tell you she is guilty based solely on said interviews.
I'm glad you have some skill since mastering the English language escapes you.

I do not know if she is guilty or innocent. However, I do find several inconsistencies in the state's case. One of the detectives said that the bullet casing retrieved was too badly damaged to associate it with a particular gun. The real estate developer is the one who acted as an informant. He was supposedly a family friend. He had friends on the police department, and no consideration was given towards him as a possible suspect. These two points alone are enough to at least cause a second trial. If she is guilty, then she can be found so by addressing the above two issues.

Some good points. But if they were her latex gloves they would certainly have her DNA cellular residue inside (or outside) of them, wouldn't they ? but didn't. And if she were not wearing the gloves then gunshot residue would have been found on her hands/wrists, wouldn't it ? But didn't.
As for interview interpretation, the likes of Stefan Kiszko, Barry Procter, Eileen Chalford and more than a dozen others were wrongfully convicted because a police forensic 'expert' decided their 'body language' attributed to their 'guilt'.
Other than that there are certainly several good points which need to be answered in the above.
Above all, if she is guilty (and I am not counseled to defend her)then let a jury have ALL the facts in another time around.

This woman is as guilty as hell! The sad thing is that her victims family actauly believe her? She thought a pritty face will get her everything, not a "not guilty" verdict sweat heart, some things in life you can't get with looks. I am sitting here watching a documentary on the case, her body language and movement of her eyes tell me as an expert in the fiel only one thing, she is lying throug her teeth! You are one evil woman Darlene!

Very rarely looks include brains, this just proves that statement. Did she honestly think that she will get away with the cold blooded murder of her husband? Those guns were put out in the yard for someone to steel, by Darlene herself. Be realistic, a blond can't plan a murder. I agree with South-African, I am no expert but the lies are clearly visable on her face. Manipulation expert is a good word for this cold blooded woman. Planning a move while your husband just got shot in your house is strange, I would want to stay to be close to where he was and our life was, she wanted to get away because she wanted the new life she shot her husband for ASAP. Sick bitch!

She said the police convicted her the night they arrived at the house when her husband was shot, yes Darlene, because they deal with these things on a daily basis, they know smoke from fire. Your 911 call gives you away, she told the story to 911 that she had prepared for the police? Every single thing about this woman and her case shouts "guilty" because she is. This woman is exactly where she should be, locked up! Narssistic woman, that is what she is. Her behaviour is not normal, she is guilty!

I believe she is innocent. Unless a person is a very talented actor/actress, the are unable to cry on cue. Darlene shed a few tears on the Snapped show. Did the state test for Darlene's fingerprints on the gun? Did the state do ballistics testing to determine if the bullet which killed Keith came from the gun Darlene allegedly used?
Thanks to the prosecutor's stupidity, Darlene probably now has a girlfriend.
Please note; actors cry in movies, don't they, this woman is a narssistic evil manipulative killer.

Sorry but I don't get it? I am an atractive man, have a good eye for pritty woman, Darlene Gentry is NOT an attractive woman? Is it just me? Wtf?

The impression I got off her on TV was, "sick wacko" I would say the same thing if I met her for the 1st time on a blind date and I would be very angry at the person that set it up. Maybe it's the dumb expressions on her face and in her eyes? I just don't see pritty at all!!!???

I can see her killing her husband, I think she did it.

Jip, I can see her in a rage, throwing tantrims, screaming and shouting, she has a dark hidden side to her. They should dive into her personality, I think her children will have a lot to say about Mommy deares"s true colours. She is also extremely self centered. Me me me me me .....

The gun in the pond did not forensically match the murder weapon.
How did the gun get into the pond? The police were at the house in less than 20 minutes (no time for DG to vist the pond and dispose of the gun), police search of the house and DG (and these are very thorough)showed the gun was not at the house when they arrived.
Why were DG's fingerprints not found on the guns left on the lawn outside ?
Why did the spent cartridge not match the bullet ?

Like after watching the tape - of course everyone is like she did it- me too LOL. But honestly I've watched her live interview & snapped & the Id program about 12 x total - this is the thing - if she had better counsel - because we all know its innocent before proven guilty- so if she had counsel that was on her side,- I would've been like - my kids were by this lake - the other day, this is the property I'm having a house built , we wre checking it out - when I went to grab my little boy so it didn't fall In , my wedding ring fell off - its all I had left in this world of him. I was devasted , that's why I asked the guy too go ahead and go back too draining it.. I was hoping it would turn up..
Their is so many excuses she could've gave...
It doesn't make it right. Like the excuse she's saying - I heard the Gunman three a gun in the water - and I wanted too help!!! Like that don't sound good !!! She had it good , but she kept fighting with her hubby ( the one she killed ) over her spending - she was spend happy , she probably felt like she deserved it , beings so pretty and a good mom- but u can't eat caviar on a soup salary !!'I know his was ticked off about it- she was so tired of hearing him complain about it - so pow pow pow !!! Me personally why not just divorce !!! Is it really worth it, like she really wanted too look like a great Christian beautiful mommy , she couldn't have a flaw - it's like these people Think divorce is such s Dam SIN- but a bullet to the back of the head ( cowardly) when he's asleep is do much better !!! Men sometimes marry with their you know what's - but not all pretty women beautiful women - Iam not - he should've looked around a little bit better !!! Iam not blaming him either !!! But Dar your looking at 93 before your coming out - good luck girlie ( hooker ) I saw give her ass a lie detector test !!! That's usually what they Do - just too see how miserably she's fail!!! I bet the pampered princess hates sharing a cell - and a bar of soup on a rope !!! Eww

I have the same questions that you do about the shell casing found wrapped in the latex gloves. It was the state's one piece of hard evidence and while there were plenty of crime scene photos of other pieces of evidence, none were taken of the gloves and shell casing before they were removed from the trash can. It would make no sense to dispose of the weapon, but remove a spent shell casing from a revolver. I've also read that contrary to other blogs and the Paula Zahn show, the state's ballistics expert stated something to the effect that he could not say definitively that the spent shell casing matched the recovered weapon. I wish I was independently wealthy so I could return to Texas and review the trial transcripts. I have the utmost respect for law enforcement, but I'm afraid that in this case there was a rush to judgement, prosecutorial misconduct and pathetic legal representation of the defendant. The audio of the investigators recorded at the crime scene really make it sound like they zeroed in on Darlene immediately.

Thank You Eric. Fortunately I do have those resources and further investigation only reveals that Texas DJ have no responses, no further comments to make and, will not allow access to the original photographic evidence. NOW, if their conviction was/is safe - why the determiantion not to disclose evidence ?

It should all be a matter of public record...if they have nothing to hide. The latest article I saw on the case was that a big name lawyer from Houston had withdrawn and that she might be represented by a lawyer from "The Innocence Project" but when I check their site, I didn't find any information on her at all. If she did it, then she deserves to be where she is, but it appears that there are some important questions regarding this case. Should she obtain competent counsel, maybe some of those questions will be answered.

Let's say she is innocent, which I strongly doubt. Questions: Why did someone break into the home and kill the husband only? Why were all the guns laid out on the lawn? Why did she not reveal immediately that her husband was shot to the 911 operator? Why as a SINGLE MOTHER OF THREE who just experienced a HOME INVASION that ended in the DEATH OF HER HUSBAND, would she plan to move away from her in-laws so soon to live BY HERSELF? If she suddenly changed her mind about the pond, why not find another house? If she heard a rumor about the gun in the pond, why did she think she'd find it? Why didn't she take people with her to find it? Why wouldn't she assume that the police finding the gun would exonerate her? Why is the innocence project saying she wanted to testify, yet on Snapped I hear her say testifying is a bad idea? I don't blame her for trying to get over, this country and world for that matter has taught her she can do no wrong, and should be taken at her word because she's inherently good no matter how bad she behaves. Just like Bernie Madoff, you know before 2008. White does not equal right.

Yes Eric it should - all be a matter of public record. If there is nothing worong with the conviction - nothing wrong with the evidence - nothing to hide, why is the State hiding it ?
She may be guilty. But with-holding evidence only makes the suspicions worse. A re-trial should get ALL the evidence released, which is why I am in favour of it.
