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...

  2. Agreed. And I can't believe she didn't kill them sooner.

  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?

  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.
