    This case shows some interesting things to me.

    Most important is he is not trying to explain away his actions.
    Pretending to be innocent.
    It doesn’t say the reasons behind her conviction.
    But his comment about her involvement is rational to me.
    That she talked about the situation that they were in.
    He doesn’t seem to accuse her directly.
    But rather he came to a very irrational conclusion to those comments and murdered.

    It is good to see he is accepting of his actions.
    Now just good support and guidance is needed.
    Learning how he ended up doing what happened.
    And a support structure keeping him on a good path when he gets released.

    The possibility exists he is flawed due to irrational thinking.
    Why he didn’t tell the truth in the beginning is interesting.
    Or why the legal system didn’t expose it.
    The sex offending story is confusing to me.
    Is it even true?
    What was its influence on the trial.
    Wouldn’t the assault victim be the one to fear about complaining.
    Would a partner stay with a man after finding out about the assault.

    If the victim was present, why no interference of the assault.
    I struggle to make sense of the situation.
    Would the victim not have joined in, or helped if they were present.
    If they didn’t interfere, stoping it.
    It’s possible he just watched, even if it was due to fear.
    The reasons for murder are slim.
    And doesn’t explain his partners actions.

    Why did she not like the victim, to say the things she said?
    To encourage murder, or worse.
    There is too much missing in this story.
    His new confession is possible.
    It doesn’t sound right for some reason.
    Extremely paranoid resultant to murder just for that.

    Notice both have paranoia as the reason.
    I would want to explore that prior to his release.
