Robert Blake Found Liable for Wife's Death

A California jury by a 10-2 vote has determined that Robert Blake is civilly liable for the death of his wife which may trigger the California slayer statute.

The jury pondered the issue for eight days and included in its verdict an award of $30 million to the survivors of Bonny Lee.

I assume Blake will appeal.

See Greg Risling, Civil Jury Says Blake Behind Wife's Murder, AP, Nov. 18, 2005.

Special thanks to Prof. Peter Henning of the White Collar Crime Prof Blog for bringing this development to my attention.
