Jury deliberates in millionaire murder trial

A Florida jury on Friday has begun deliberating the fate of a millionaire accused of killing his wife in their upscale home.

During the trial, attorneys painted sharply different pictures of James "Bob" Ward that jurors will have to weigh.

The defense said Ward loved his family, while prosecutors contend the Florida millionaire's demeanor - along with the evidence - proves he murdered his wife.

  1. Murder of his wife

    I think that he will get away with in because Casey did. My faith in the justice system, that is all I need to say.

    He may get off, due more to the fact he has money for a strong defense, than the fact that it is Florida.

    It is time for specially trained, professional jurors. A jury of one's peers is a nice idea, but it is deeply flawed.

    Tony Davis Murder: Regular Black Man murders wealthy white man -> excecuted
    James "Bob" Ward Murder: Extremely Wealthy White Man murders wife -> will get off free. (aka for a price that will mean nothing to him)

    America, where money does all the talking for you.
