Convicted Murderer Takes Plea Deal To Avoid Death Penalty
Trendall Matthews is taking a plea deal by testifying against her accomplice of the double homicide of Jessica Palmer and her 3-year-old son in 2008. The murders occured after a complicated love triangle had occurred between Palmer, Matthews and Dominique Smith. Matthews pleaded guilty after the daughter of Palmer survived the incident, even after having her throat slit, by hiding in the park overnight. Matthews is likely to spend the rest of her life in jail.
