Packard: But I'm "a good mom"
"He was perfect for Nanette. He was very rich. Why was he so perfect? He was gone three days a week. What better person to cheat on? You've got no eyes watching you and you can cheat on him over and over and over again."

--Orange County Public Defender Michael Hill explaining to a jury one reason why his client, accused killer Nanette Ann Packard--an admitted, notorious slut and thief, would have "never" wanted her ultra-wealthy, Newport Beach boyfriend, William McLaughlin, murdered in Dec. 1994. Prosecutor Matt Murphy believes that Packard and one of her many side boyfriends, ex-New England Patriot's linebacker Eric Naposki, wanted McLaughlin dead to steal part of his estimated $55 million fortune. Hill claims Naposki was the gunman and acted alone. Murphy convicted Naposki last year. Packard's jury is expected to begin deliberations today.

Hill's is a brilliant point... until you look at the evidence. McLaughlin was about to cotton on to her. Were it not for that, I'm sure she would ahve kept two-timing him on the side and he would never have been murdered. But SHE WAS ABOUT TO GET CAUGHT. I think she had him killed partly in an effort to save her from detection and partly in an effort to get the last squeeze of money out of him before she moved on to another man. I have no sympathy for the wench. I hope this is another one in the bag for Murphy.

Is this moron Michael Hill working for the D.A.'s office or for the defense? This lady has dug her own grave, he's just throwing dirt on top. Trying to think up a defense for this lady is like trying to pull a rabbit out of your azz. In other words, this lady has NO defense.

He's about as bad at that cruise boat captain saying he tripped and fell into a life boat. Hill should just tell the jury that Nanette was only kidding when she asked Naposki to kill McLaughlin. She was just joking when she gave him the key to the gate. Naposki and Nanette were just joking around when they looked at million dollar houses and told a real estate agent they would have the cash in a few weeks (all this before McLaughlin was gunned down). Nanette was just pulling a prank when she stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from McLaughlin right before he was shot. He nees to tell the jury "Gosh, this was all a big joke. Eric tripped and fell and the gun went off".

Let's hope the jury is bright enough to see the truth.

You have to admit, in a nutty way, it makes sense. She was having her cake and eating it, too.
