Tulsa woman on trial admits shoving husband
TULSA, Okla. (AP) -A 21-year-old Tulsa woman accused of shoving her husband through a window of their 25th floor apartment told jurors Friday that she pushed him but that she did so in self-defense.
Amber Hilberling testified in her own defense Friday. She's charged with second-degree murder in the 2011 death of Joshua Hilberling.
Amber Hilberling told jurors that she was seven months pregnant at the time and feared for her safety. Earlier Friday, a defense witness testified that he found the windows in the apartment to be ``unusually thin'' and said they weren't well maintained.
Prosecutors allege Amber Hilberling intentionally shoved her husband to his death. On Thursday, they challenged Hilberling's claim of self-defense by calling police detectives who testified they saw no signs of a struggle in the couple's apartment.
