A prosecutor says a Florida woman accused of fatally poisoning her Marine husband with arsenic and spending his death benefit on shopping, eating out and plastic surgery remarked to a rescue worker about his life insurance the night he died.
Cynthia Sommer told an emergency worker that she had kidded with her husband about his $250,000 military life insurance policy, but added that she never thought she would actually see it.
Sommer has pleaded not guilty to charges that she murdered her husband for financial gain.
She was extradited last March to California from Florida and faces life in prison if she is convicted.
