Mark Jensen

Mark Jensen was originally convicted in 2008 in the death of his wife, Julie Jensen. Evidence included a letter Julie Jensen, 40, wrote before her death and gave to a neighbor. In it, she wrote that 'if anything happens to me that her husband would be my first suspect.' However, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Jensen should receive a new trial without the letter used as evidence. His defense argued that Julie Jensen was depressed and killed herself after framing her husband for her death. Prosecutors argued that Mark Jensen killed his wife with antifreeze in order to be with his mistress, and that he searched the internet for ways to make her death look like a suicide.
