71 year old Robert Blake was aquitted of all charges today in the case of his wife's murder. The case, being held for four years, is finally over, but with a controversial verdict.
 



www.cnn.com
LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Four years of a real-life crime story ended Wednesday for actor Robert Blake, the star of "In Cold Blood" and "Baretta," when a California jury acquitted him of murder in the 2001 slaying of his wife.

Man, this is just wrong. Someone with that much evidence gets released. What has this world come to.

Maybe Blake's Baretta character went into the trial but it was his Lost Highway character that got him out of it.

I'm actually elated he got off.
And, Yes. I do believe he did it. (Please do not flame me, it's just my opinion)

Goes to show our court system actually works. The prosecution had absolutely no real direct evidence. (very much UNLIKE the OJ case)

I haven't followed the case. Why is it 'wrong'? What evidence did they have?

The article notes

Bakley was shot to death May 4, 2001, outside Blake's favorite Italian restaurant in Studio City, after the two had dinner.

Blake had said he left Bakley in the car while he returned to the restaurant to retrieve a handgun he had left behind. He told detectives he was armed because his wife feared someone was stalking her.

That seems pretty obvious, but, if thats all there is, then it shouldn't be a surprise that he wasn't convicted. What else was there?

Pet peeve


I've seen several posts on this, and almost all of them have had the last name spelled as Balke.

No DNA evidance, no Fingerprints, suspect testamonies by ex-drug addicts and absolutely no link between him and the murder weapon. Kinda beyond a reasanable doubt dont you think?
