What is the circumstantial evidence; only that he is a shitty husband or is there more?

This is not news.

Police always suspect the spouse. If spouse is cheating... done for.

Just from what was on the show it didn't seem to be enough to convict beyond a reasonable doubt. The boyfriend or his wife had just as much motive. Chances are that they got it right but not without reasonable doubt. Basically in trials like that one it comes down to who the jury likes more or believes not actual evidence. Sadly, this is what the justice system has come to in some cases. It's one big popularity contest between tthe lawyers and the defendent/plaintiff/victim. Not exactly what the founding fathers had in mind when they came up with this stuff.

Thanks to a culture that elevates psychology to deific levels, we are more concerned with making a suspect resemble a crime than to prove he committed it.

Yeah, I've had the misfortune of being on the jury in a couple of trials (not murder, but close) in which there was very little physical evidence, only circumstantial.

In these cases. it's very hard to keep folks on point in the jury room. In one trial, a couple of people were basing their decisions on which attorneys they liked the best.

Didn't see this episode, but it seems like in many, if not most of these Dateline NBC-type murder shows, one of the key pieces of evidence is always,

"they didn't act like they should have after the murder".

Not that they acted guilty of anything. It's that they weren't falling-out crying for every moment for weeks after the tragedy, so they must have committed the murder. I've seen "not acting like a grieving person should" quoted over and over by the actual DA's and officers in interviews on these shows. That's a little scary to me.

"Abnormal" is a label with far-reaching consequences. Far too many consequences for a label that is rarely defined. The sentiment behind it can usually be expressed as something like, "Not what I can imagine myself doing".

Nothing can cause you to lose faith in our CJ system more quickly than being on a jury.

Why is that scary? Its based off good investigative technique.

Deal with enough of any crime and you get a sense of how certain parties should respond to certain actions. A spouse who either over or under reacts beyond a certain degree to their spouse being dead is usually involved.
