It doesn’t happen often, but when a murder defendant takes the stand to testify in their own defense it never fails to fascinate, and the testimony of Michelle Boat was no exception. Boat, who was found guilty of the murder of her romantic rival Tracy Mondabough and now faces life in prison for first degree murder, took the stand in an attempt to convince the jury to convict her of a lesser charge.
Host Vinnie Politan and Court TV anchor Ted Rowlands will break down her testimony and examine what may have hurt her cause the most.
