Dana Thompson stood in the dock during the prosecution's opening statements Michael Burbach Q._C. spoke about Julian Webb told jurors there was a police investigation but perhaps it was not as detailed as it might have been. The prosecution says Julian did not kill himself. The defendant killed him by subterfuge. She tricked him into taking lethal quantities of drunks. The prosecutor asked the Jiri One man who was by all accounts fit and healthy showing no signs of depression chose to take his life on his thirty first birthday and why would his wife being such a hurry to have her husband's body cremated also when paramedics arrived during the early hours Dena Thompson retrieved empty bottle of aspirin and the antidepressant dolphin however she was caring for her husband she claimed how was it possible he could have retrieved the drugs without knowing the jury will tell that during the. The evening of June thirtieth nineteen ninety-four Thompson spoke with a friend of Julian's in the United States and explain the husband had an extremely spicy curry for dinner and was feeling unwell. The pair had been to an Indian restaurant and the prosecution postulated it was possible jillions food could have been laced with vast amounts of aspirin and an antidepressant.

We're told him that's along with some they would be moving to America where they would make fifty million pounds from showing the Leprechaun want also told won't Disney. We're in the process of arranging their accommodation. This plan would not come to fruition however is what insisted the from the Blue Thompson told him that they were now being chased by the Mafia so he had to move away and change his name. It was not until the beginning of Nineteen nineteen ninety-four that he started to question Dina Story Lee once spoke of his fragile mental state explaining he experienced delusions in which he communicated with his dead father by plucking in paper from a bag marked with yes. Oh No responses under cross examination counsel for Dena Thompson Joanna Greenberg. Q._C. told the witness that he was not living in a fantasy world.

She soon asked me questions about money going to him and benefits. I remember being extremely surprised to the extent that tie remember banging on the politician to cool my colleague into listen to this amazing cool in a further twist before Julian's death Patricia Smith who also worked for the newspaper confided to Graham Hewitt that she was having an affair with Julian which ended a few weeks before he passed away the to discuss the matter is Patricia.

Z. Summarize the evidence against Dean Thompson arguing she had administered a concentrated dose of Aspirin and antidepressants in a hot curry to kill her husband but Obama criticized the defendant for not taking the standing around defense but during closing arguments Joanna Green Bug Q._C. who successfully defended Thompson during her trial for attempted murder told the jury at the Old Bailey the tool the crown hat was circumstantial on chill evidence and the blame had only fallen on Thompson shoulders as those close to Julian were unable to accept that he would choose to Tyke his life Greenberg said this case is about an attempt by the prosecution addition to prove that by gathering together strange facts and hoffer cooled conversations by saying. We don't want to accept that Julian committed suicide and by saying diener is not a very nice person but evidence putting dean or in a poor light is evidence Johnson which he can rely to say she committed murder oldest is proved is that diener is not a nice person. You certainly wouldn't buy second hand car from her and she is certainly a person who is very frequently a stranger to the truth truth. That's evidence has fallen very sure to proving she committed a murder. Julian had the choice here and he made a wrong choice in ending his own life but he was his life. He was free to take it. Greenberg told the jury to question the evidence is even with an incredibly spicy curry. It was unlikely that Julian Webb would not have realized what he was eating counsel for the defense said just because Dana Thompson was a lawyer but did not make her a murderer following the judge's summing coming up of the case he told the jury that even though Dena Thompson was a liar and morally corrupt did not mean she had a propensity to mudder he said you will have to distinguish between a light how to disguise <unk> her intention to kill an ally told for another reason jurors will left to consider based on the evidence presented at trial the t the Julian Webb took his own life a scenario. The defense insisted wasted his family were unable to accept or he was poisoned by Dena Thompson after a five week trial and just I've a ten hours of deliberations the jury of five women and six men submitted that verdict they had not been informed of Dina thompsons past which included her previous acquitted of attempted murder or her convictions for stealing from a building society and to pass lovers one Jira felt that Dena Thompson and was not guilty but ten others were certain that Julian Webb was poisoned and died in the home he shared with his wife on Douglas Clive's in Yaps in West Sussex as the verdict was read aloud and Julien's family embraced one another in the public gallery of the Old Bailey during sentencing in mid December two thousand three the judge recorder of London Michael Hayme Face Tina Thompson and said you brought about Julian Webb's death by poisoning him what you did was utterly ruthless and without pity nothing can excuse you for the wickedness of what you did. <music> Thompson was sentenced to life in prison would have to serve a minimum of thirteen years <music> outside the courtroom.

The thompsons conviction was based on circumstantial evidence however the appeal focused on the trawl judge's dismissal of an argument made by the defense that Thompson had no case to answer and should not have gone before a jury Dena Thompson never gave evidence attire original trial counsel for the defence. Joanna Greenberg told the cool the Thompson was deceit Philan- devious so he would not have helped the defense's case had she taken the stand aw Greenberg argued that it was thompson's apparent disquieting character that was used by the prosecution and said if it was any other person their behavior would not have ray suspicion to additional grounds for appeal focused on the balance of the summing up by the judge along with the statistical argument the men between the ages of twenty five and thirty four or more likely to die by suicide <music> after reviewing the submission by the defense the judges commented on each of the points raised regarding the arguments relating to the possibility ability of suicide the three judges pointed to testimony provided by the defense his own witness at the trial who said that there was no direct research which could be referenced in order to bolster the claim that Julian Webb was suicidal chew due to his age in relation to the points made by the defense concerning the pollens character.
