Days later, a memorial service was held at Castle Rock's Founders Park that drew hundreds of people, including Eric

He didn't speak at the gathering, merely listening while clad in a hooded sweatshirt. However, Madigan's kindergarten teacher, Salome Raj, captured the thoughts of many when she said, "I will miss her but I'm glad I had the honor of being part of her short life."

Her life, and Liam's, are front and center at the trial. "Mothers are not supposed to kill their children. Mother's provide life," Douglas County Deputy District Attorney Jay Williford said in his opening statement, while arguing for a first-degree-murder conviction. "But in this case, Kelli Lynn Murphy, squeezed the life from nine-year-old Liam and six-year-old Madigan by her own hands. Both Liam and Madigan's life have been silenced."

In contrast, Ara Ohanion, Kelli Lynn's attorney, who seems to be hoping the jury agrees to lesser charges, cast her as isolated and confused due to her marital situation. He also asserted that Murphy had swigged an entire bottle of vodka and downed sleeping pills in the hope that her children would find her dead the following morning.

"Her plan was that she would go to sleep and not wake up. Her kids would find her. They would know she did not abandon them, [that] she just passed away," 9News quotes Ohanion as saying. But when she woke up, "the kids were dead, and she wasn't."

Here's a larger look at Kelli Lynn's mug shot, followed by videos tracing the case to date.

I can't think of a single county where the 'Insanity' defense has been effective.

UNLESS, when defending law enforcement or politicians.

Patrick Sullivan CONTINUES to be an EXCELLENT example of this.

Poor Kelli!!!!! Her husband yelled at the kids! Even if you can believe anything this stupid woman says, she should have gotten the death penalty.

No because she's going to be a tax payers burden til she dies. Put me in a room with her. Hold her down and ill cover her with a pillow beating her with a orange filled sock til she dies.
