2014 defense attorney testimony from Kristen Winemiller

“David Ryder’s own marriage was with a woman a decade younger, a young woman who was 17 when Ryder first seduced her. On the night he was killed, she had been imploring him all night long to come home so she would be ready for a class early the next morning. She reminded him again and again that he needed to be there to care for their toddler so she could leave for school by 7 A.M. Her husband wasn’t committed enough to her future to be there so she could study and rest up for her class. He wasn’t committed enough to his young son to be home at a decent hour.”
