I am sure you are all familiar with this case:
The chief medical examiners in Tarrant and Bexar counties went head to head Wednesday in the murder trial of Chante Mallard, sometimes offering conflicting opinions about what occurred after Gregory Glenn Biggs crashed through her car windshield.
The prosecution completed its presentation of evidence Wednesday morning, and the defense rested it case in the afternoon after calling only one witness – the Bexar County, Texas, medical examiner.
I found this piece of information just awful:
Tarrant County Medical Examiner Nizam Peerwani, who performed Biggs’ autopsy, explained that Biggs suffered a broken right arm, right leg and a nearly amputated left leg. Peerwani ruled the death a homicide.
He testified that Biggs likely survived about two hours before bleeding to death; that he could have been moaning and groaning, or even talking, because he had no neurological damage; and that “positional asphyxia” likely did not contribute to his death.
Positional asphyxia is the inability to breathe because something compresses the abdomen, which sometimes occurs by being lodged in a tight space.
Peerwani also testified that, after reviewing Mallard’s training records as a nurse’s aide, she appeared to be a “medically oriented person” who should have recognized the seriousness of Biggs’ injuries and sought help.
She just let the man die, it really is that simple. I don’t know if it is capital murder (or even murder), but the one thing I do know is that if I hear one more person on television try to excuse her because “she has never committed a crime before in her life,” I am going to wretch. This is an evil, awful, hideous woman, and I hope she never goes five minutes for the rest of her life without realizing what she has done.
