In this episode of Sword and Scale we recap the last month’s most bizarre stories in the genre of true crime. Quite a few people in trouble have gotten in trouble with the law lately because of their poor choices and bizarre behavior. Although to them it may be no laughing matter, everyone else is left thinking “just what on earth were they thinking?”

We also catch up with Cathy Russon from Court Chatter who fills us in on all the courtroom drama behind the Julie Schenecker murder case. We’ll hear her take and also let you hear Schenecker’s bizarre apology which, interestingly enough, did not include any mention of her estranged ex-husband.
