Orange County Courthouse Quote of the Day!
"He was perfect for Nanette. He was very rich. Why was he so perfect? He was gone three days a week. What better person to cheat on? You've got no eyes watching you and you can cheat on him over and over and over again."
--Orange County Public Defender Michael Hill explaining to a jury one reason why his client, accused killer Nanette Ann Packard--an admitted, notorious slut and thief, would have "never" wanted her ultra-wealthy, Newport Beach boyfriend, William McLaughlin, murdered in Dec. 1994. Prosecutor Matt Murphy believes that Packard and one of her many side boyfriends, ex-New England Patriot's linebacker Eric Naposki, wanted McLaughlin dead to steal part of his estimated $55 million fortune. Hill claims Naposki was the gunman and acted alone. Murphy convicted Naposki last year. Packard's jury is expected to begin deliberations today.
