Yoga instructor Kaitlin Armstrong found guilty of murder in fatal shooting of romantic rival Anna Moriah "Mo" Wilson. Family reactions.
A Texas jury found yoga instructor Kaitlin Armstrong guilty of murder in the fatal shooting of Anna Moriah "Mo" Wilson, her romantic rival. The verdict was reached after less than three hours of deliberation. The Wilson family and friends were visibly emotional following the verdict, while Armstrong's family appeared to be in a state of shock. Wilson was found with multiple gunshot wounds at a friend's home in Austin, Texas, and was romantically linked to Armstrong's then-boyfriend, Colin Strickland. Armstrong was arrested in Costa Rica and has been detained on a $3.5 million bond. The sentencing phase is currently underway, with the court hearing statements from witnesses, including Wilson's family and friends. Prosecutors presented evidence that they say showed Armstrong's 2012 Jeep Cherokee circling the residence's block the night of the homicide, that her firearm was used in the homicide and her DNA was likely found on Wilson's bicycle. The defense will also present witnesses prior to the sentencing. Armstrong declined to testify during the trial. Strickland testified about his and Armstrong's on-again, off-again "tumultuous" relationship. The trial has been emotional for both families and has led to a great deal of heartache and suffering.
