  1. You have not asked a question. I suggest speaking to his lawyer and then talking to your husband about his options. Perhaps his attorney will have ideas on how you can provide help with information.

  4. Since a murder 2d charge is punishable by 25 years to life (assuming no other convictions), the issue is one of risk tolerance vs. how strong a case he has. As your husband certainly has an attorney, he should be discussing this in detail with him. The decision is always the client's and he should make an informed decision. A plea is an accepted compromise which balances risk vs. the strength of the case.
