    Most notably, he testified after his own death (assisted suicide).

    I like how desperate the defendant clearly is; saying that she was simply trying to blackmail him, that he had therefore put acid in a glass, and that she had thrown it on him, thinking it was water.

    She had been violent towards him before and he only told friends he never when to the police. He should have gone to police the first time she was violent towards him that why he might still be alive today.

    I saw this earlier, really sad news

    Really horrific that there's been yet another acid related attack too.

    She attempted to kill him with acid. She's getting tried for her attempt.

    The fact that he required euthanasia is irrelevant.

    I'm glad they're bumping it up to murder. He'd still be alive if she hadn't had done that. What a *****.

    I don't know if you are aware of this case, but she is actually being tried for murder, not attempted murder. I guess it is interesting in that he took he own life, yet the murder charge stands.
