SCORNED HOUSEWIFE BETTY BRODERICK DENIED PAROLE


CHINO, Calif. — One-time San Diego socialite Betty Broderick on Thursday was denied parole for fatally shooting her ex-husband and his new wife more than 20 years ago, with a two-person panel saying she remains angry and unrepentant over her crime.


The decision came after a dramatic five-hour hearing in which Broderick's own four children were divided on whether she should win her freedom. Two believed she should remain behind bars.

Board of Prison Terms Commissioner Robert Doyle, who delivered the decision to Broderick, told her he had never seen an inmate who had made so little progress in acknowledging what she had done.


"Your heart is still bitter, and you are still angry," he said. "You show no significant progress in evolving. You are still back 20 years ago in that same mode. You've got to move on."

Broderick, 62, was convicted in 1991 of second-degree murder and sentenced to 32 years to life in prison for the slayings. Her story became the subject of a book and two TV movies. She has maintained she was driven to kill by a bitter divorce and custody battle. FULL STORY IN HUFFINGTON POST

  1. She's NOT sorry, which I personally find rather awesome. You never saw two people more hell-bent on driving a woman crazy than Dan Broderick and Linda "Stinky" Kolkena (look up why I call her that). They succeeded in doing so. Betty shot and killed them both. End of story. No one should be surprised, and I'm not sure that anyone should expect Betty to feign sorry and remorse. She's resolute about what she did. That's pretty hardcore.

    1. I tried looking up Linda Stinky Kolkena and even Linda Smelly Kolkena and came up with zip.:-) . . just kidding I read the Bella Strumbo book. Betty's hatred of those two unsavory characters is more than understandable. But I wish she could have taken the high ground, and gone to Law school herself and killed Dan Broderick in court instead. She has spoiled her own life in that she has been in jail for decades. Her kids were greatly traumatized by the divorce to begin with, with the killing of their father making it so much worse..I think the old boy's network is what prevented her parole. She may never be released from prison. Those two skanks were just not worth it.

    2. I see no reason to punish her in prison any longer. She is not a danger to society - the two who drove her over the edge are gone now, so she won't hurt anyone else... and a Dan Broderick Award for Ethics, huh? Well, now, that's just rich...

    3. her behavior after the divorce was horrible, she destroyed her kids by her sick phone calls. they were divorced b/c of their marriage not another woman she came after. Betty was a miserable woman. she criticized everything Dan did , she will never feel remorse, she needs to before she can be paroled

    4. I find it so sad that you all think she was justified. she was a horrible woman she was mean to Dan she criticized everything he did for her and the family. she was miserable and she didn't love him. her thinking he owed her , so he was supposed to stay w/ her forever? she won't deserve parole until she is remorseful for the murders. Dan didn't have anything to do w/ Linda until after he left Betty.

    5. Why is it always poor her when it comes to a woman. Its the law people and we should try, convict, sentence all the same. We always make it out to be the mans fault. Sorry but she killed two people. Any man would have gotten life. She lucky at what she got and as far as I am concerned she should be locked up for life.

  3. Would you believe there's a Dan Broderick Award for ethics and integrity given to a lawyer in San Diego every year? Is that a hoot or what? Also, I found out that Linda Kolkena didn't bathe often and neglected washing her coochie. She also got fired from Delta Airlines for screwing customers, cussing at them, and stealing. Dan and Linda were quite the disgusting pair, weren't they?

    1. Pretty sick... condoning the murder of two innocent human beings. I don't care if they weren't the most moral people in the world, murder is sick... just like Betty and anyone who gives any merit to that bipolar narcissist. It amazes me how anyone in their right mind condone murder!!!

  5. Being cast aside after supporting ones husband for years is a terrible unfairness, however his abandonment does not justify murder. Betty knew what she was doing and allowed her anger to drive her actions. She continues to feel justified in committing this act. This is a person who would feel no guilt in murdering any other person she feels is wronging her, once released. She is mentally bent and unfit to ever be released into society.

  6. she did what every woman would like to.... and most of us don't. not that it's right to kill, but her husband was worse than a scumbag to her at the end. i have one of those scumbag ex's. however, i in my sane mind, moved on because i wanted to raise my daughter, not him. and that's exactly what i did. life couldn't be better now but believe me after almost 30 years i still wish i could spit in his face. the moral of the story? life goes on and time has a way of healing if not fully.

  7. She lost everything before she committed the murders and lost again all these years in prison. Sad that 2 people lost their lives but would being remorseful change the way most think of her? No one would believe her so it's kind of damn if you do and damn if you don't. Bad situation

  8. All of the players in this game sound crazy. The children did nothing to any of these crazy people, and yet, they are the only true victims, from what I am able to ascertain. Nobody should take a life and nobody deserves to have their life taken, but the children suffered more than dan, linda or betty.

  11. I am shocked at the response of people who havent studied this case. So if two people do you wrong thats reason enough to kill? Give me a break. If thats the case, everyone would be killing. She is an vile, sick individually filled with rage and bitterness over something she couldnt control. Until she admits that, she needs to stay locked up.

    1. Leave her ass in prison. Some women are too bitter and it gives us all a bad look. You push a man away and then when he leaves and moves on to a happy life you regret it?! She dropped her kids off just to be petty and then cried that she misses them and they won't let her see them. She is a jealous, vindictive, ugly murderer. She didn't miss what she had until another woman was in her place...she is crazy. Do the crime pay the time. Old hag...I hate jealous stupid women!!!!!! Just get over it and move on.

    2. Ive been left broke and hungry and on welfare with 3 kids, but never in my mind would I allow so much anger for my ex husband and father to my children to MURDER HIM in cold blood! NEVER! and my ex husband left me and took everything from me he beat me multiple times and never once got arrested..every one was on his side,including my own family..I now live in a 1 bedroom apartment with my 3 children I recieve foodstamps and work part time as a sales clerk..I receive very little child support due to my ex husband also paying child support to his previous wife before me and their 2 children and not to mention his now girlfriend is pregnant with his child! His new girlfriend harrasess me constantly and my ex husband repeatedly screams how he is gonna take my kids from me, claiming im unfit and can't support them which is all a ploy to get out of the child support payments he is order to pay me which isnt much anyway....my ex is the worse of them all..he is currently cheating on his pregnant girlfriend with my co workers sister...so basically what I'm trying to say is with all the drama my ex husband is putting me through which is ten times worse than what Ms. Rich fancy socialite betty Broderick went thru is no grounds or excuse for MURDER.. I cant explain the anount of rage I have for my ex husband and his slutty pregnant girlfriend, but NEVER would I choose to go murder to human beings in cold blood..my ex is scum no dening that but he is still father to my children and murder is never the solution to ANGER..She deserves prison..she let her anger get out of control and she know exactly what she was doing and she had no care concern for the people and others that she hurt and she still don't to thiis day!

  12. He left her penniless. My brother has been a divorce lawyer for 30 years. This woman was robbed in every way. He murdered her character, her reputation, her finances, he demonized her to the children, he did every destructive action possible. She is better off in jail as he left her homeless and broke in every way!

    1. He bought her a house. She received Hal of the the old house. He paid her alimony in the amount of $16,000 a month. I wish I could be so homeless and penniless.

      Betty Broderick is a narcissist in EVERY sense of the word.

      If she did get out I think it would hurt those children even as grown adults. What if she thought they should have done more to help her. Or if she thought the money from their fathers estate should be her own? Would she then kill them because she was once again a jaded woman? She thinks everyone is out to get her.

    2. He left this crazy woman in a 650,000 dollar house. He left her with 3 cars. He left her with alimony that in 2015 would amount to $300,000/year. If that is YOUR idea of homeless and penniless I truly hope for your sake that you never have to join the real world. This is a woman who thinks everyone should cater to her slightest whim and when that doesn't happen then by God she'll show 'em. I just can't figure out how they only found her guilty of SECOND degree murder because she obviously planned to do this.

  13. She has no one else to blame but herself. Her piss poor, negative attitude drove her husband to divorce, Her continual harassment of Dan and her children, just proved how selfish she truly is. She planned this murder, no if and or buts about it, she is true evil in flesh and blood, and twenty years later absolutely not one attitude change. Just listen to her. She is to blame for everything that has happened to her in her life.

  14. she deserves to sit in jail and rot..ANGER is one of the seven deadly sins! there have been women that have been beaten, tormented and left penniless by the spouses but that's not a cause for murder! she drove this man away and when he found happiness and moved on she became jealous anger and bitter...im appauld on how she dragged her children through her anger and bitterness and cause so much pain to those innocent children...I can understand her being angry, but she allowed her anger to get way outta control!!but I'm glad that parole denied her because she lie so much and twist her story so many different times..she is in full denial..she has not asked God for forgiveness nor has she taken responsibility for her actions..! God sees this and until she does she will not be freed spiritually nor physically!

  15. She had no right to murder 2 people while they slept in their house not hers. Broderick stole her daughters keys broke into their house and fired a gun into 2 unarmed people. She had a home , 3 cars and 16,000 a month in alimony and a boyfriend living with her. I think she's fucked up and she's where she belongs and let's hope she stays there forever and never gets released from prison

  17. I too was scorned by my ex but simply walked away empty handed. I lost much more than Betty B.. Thankfully I had a wonderful family that convinced me that I need not fight a legal battle with the dishonorable person that he was: he would surely. get what was coming to him if I left things be. It wasn't easy I admit. During the time lapse before justice became obvious, I did much soul searching. I realized that I was no innocent either. His behavior was always consistent:before & after we fell out. I had been like him at some point. Some years after I moved on to a happy marriage I got word that my ex in spite of his vast wealth that Alan Broderick would envy was murdered. I have been blessed over the years. I learned that though I was poor as a child and lost a fortune of a lifetime I never need be concerned with the behavior of others. Betty B. Did not have to murder those people. If they were guilty of wrongs against her they would surely have paid the consequences for them. Time and the truth from Bible teaching have both helped me to minimize perceived wrongs against me and lead a life of contentment. I hope Betty B. Will one day come to a peaceful resolution within herself.
